Was this employee being rude to my grandmother?

Earlier today my 90 year old grandmother went shopping at a grocery store not because she needed to go shopping but because she wants to socialize with the employees there, she goes to this particular store as often as twice a day because she's a lonely woman who's been a widow for several years.

One day the employee who my grandmother likes to see tells her that she needs to stay at home because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and that she's risking her life and health, he's also worried that my grandmother would get a Coronavirus, my grandmother felt so hurt and betrayed by this employee telling her this because he's one of the reasons why she likes going to this store.

    He's just concerned for her safety. Coronavirus cases are increasing exponentially and there is a very real chance of contracting it in public. If she catches it at her age, she has a considerable chance of not recovering from it.

    No, the employer was right. At 90 she is vulnerable and she should be at home. Tell her that he was being a concerned friend. Tell her she also could get fined for being ou socialising. Be extra nice and cheer her up with flowers or chocolate.

    Please reassure your grandmother that he was only thinking of her safety. Does she not understand that she should stay indoors during this crisis? Do explain to her how important it is.

    THe employee was not trying to be rude. He was concerned that she was risking her life just to chat with people. If she does get sick it is highly unlikely that she could survive. Please talk to her and tell her to wait abit before she goes out again.
