A new interactive site allows you to check the wait times for stores in your city before you shop.

The website, covid19-waiting-time.thejoin.tech, collects data for all wait times for many different locations in your city and helps you plan your day during social distancing. You can enter GPS coordinates, addresses, or a city in the search bar. The site is also interactive and asks users to give updates for stores while they are in line.

The map also has colour coded pins with green pins indicating wait times that are 10 minutes or less, yellow for 15 minutes or less, orange for 15-30 minutes and red for more than 30 minutes.

The site loads in Italy at first, because it was created there, but click the magnifying glass symbol to search for Brampton or for a specific store, and with any luck you will know how long you can expect to wait.
