3 Must do’s if You Are Planning on Grocery Shopping Amid the Outbreak
Grocery shopping isn’t safe anymore and has been listed as an activity that has gone from being normal to something with a slightly different meaning. If you get cold feet every time you get inside any grocery store, then you are not alone as people around the world are facing the same feelings too.
People need food to survive, and they have to go out to buy that if they run out of groceries at home. Storing up and stockpiling food is a much smaller issue when it comes to going out and wishing that you don’t get the virus.
The problem is not just of getting a virus from a grocery store but also becoming a cause of spread in your surroundings. Keeping things short, here are some tips that you need to practice during your next grocery store trip.
Use a face mask
Although healthy people have nothing to fear even if they get the virus, they still can be a cause of spread, that is why experts have recommended that everyone must wear a face mask while going out. Covering your mouth with a medical mask, or a simple mask doesn’t just mean that you are trying to protect yourself, but it means that you are protecting your community
Sanitize and then some more
The ground reality is that before even buying the necessary groceries and eatables, you might end up touching other things, like shopping carts, handles of doors, price tags, etc. Even after buying the stuff, you’ll have to interact with a credit card machine or physical cash.
You never know how many infected hands touched the same item that you are carrying. That is why it is advised to use sanitizer after every encounter to avoid getting the coronavirus. Never ever touch your face with your hands even if the place is itching. Pick things up with your non-dominant hand wherever and whenever possible.
Wipe that cart too
It is not your job to clean the cart, but who knows how many times the carriage has been used and who used it. That is why it is advised to wipe the handle of the shopping cart with a hand sanitizer and a tissue to kill the virus on the spot.
If you have wipes on you, or if the store is offering it, then use that to clean the handle of the cart. You need to be extra diligent in your approach to contain the virus and not get it. Happy shopping!
