How long is this national coin shortage suppose to last?

Every store that I have been too in the past couple of days are only taking credit cards or exact change.  They have signs posted by the registers stating that it is due to the national coin shortage.

I work in a hospital, and I was surprised when I saw similar signs posted in the cafeteria and hospital restaurants.

    that may be a lie

    Some shops prefer card-payments to reduce the amount of money in store and the risk of armed robbery, but with non-cash payments your every purchase can be traced and tracked

    They're everywhere. I just use cash and get change. I don't see any coin shortage yet. Just signs.
