Before this year, you probably never gave a second thought to whether or not leaving the house to shop for groceries would put you in a compromised position for catching a life-changing virus. Like it or not, that’s the situation we’re all facing right now. However, a trip to the store for essential items doesn’t need to stop you in your tracks. Here are some tips for keeping yourself away from coronavirus while you’re out shopping for essentials:
Before you go, consider whether you need to go right now, or if you could go at a less busy time. Also, make a list of items you need before going to the store so you can be as efficient as possible.
While you’re there, use hand sanitizer or disinfecting wipes on carts or baskets, and avoid touching things that you’re not going to buy.
When you get home, wash your hands thoroughly, and wipe down what you bought.
