In the last 2 weeks, it is inevitable to notice the drastic change in the way we do our groceries due to the covid19 virus. Different measures have been taken and must be taken to protect everyone while getting our essential goods.
Here are 10 tips to safely do your groceries during the covid19 crisis:
1- Prepare a grocery list
Preparing a grocery list ahead of time is important! That way you will know exactly what you are looking for and you will spend the least amount time in the store.
2- Do online grocery shopping
Online grocery shopping is one of the best if not the best way to get your goods. It’s safe, convenient and you can take your time to choose the items that you need.
3- Designate only one person to go
If online shopping is not an option for you and that you are quarantined with other people in your house, designate only one person to go get the groceries to reduce the risk of many people potentially being expose to the virus.
4- Try to go only once a week
Avoid going to the grocery store multiple times a week so that again you can to reduce the risk of potentially being expose to the virus.
5- Limit the stores you visit
As you know these are critical times so it is not the time to shop around. Therefore, try to get everything that you need from one store, if possible.
6- Avoid paying cash use your bank card or credit card
Use your bank card or credit card to pay for your items that will prevent you from having to manipulate money and prevent any physical contact with the cashier.
7- Apply social distancing measure while in the store
Always remember to keep your distance, stay at least a meter away from everyone while going through the aisle.
8- Do not touch every item in the store
It is very important to protect each other in every way possible so do not touch every fruit, vegetable and can that you see in the store. Choose the one you want and carry on.
9- Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer before AND after going to the store
Before and also once you leave the store, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer and avoid touching your face after you’ve touched anything.
10- Disinfect your food and grocery bag once home
Once home make sure you properly wash your fruits, vegetables and packaged goods with soap & water or a 3 parts water 1 part vinegar solution before consumption. As for your reusable shopping bags, use a disinfectant or sanitizing cloth especially along the seams and handle.
