Before the pandemic, ordinary activities like shopping for groceries or other essential items were hardly given a second thought. However, now that each trip outside of our home presents a potential risk to our health, it’s more necessary to scrutinize the choices we make when it comes to these kinds of things. Specific to shopping, here are some things you might consider:
Before you go, think about whether or not you really need to go at this specific time. Shopping online, using a delivery service, or going to the store at a time when the store is less busy may be better options for this trip.
While you’re there, wear a mask, maintain social distancing, use hand sanitizer, and pay using touchless payment methods if possible.
When you get home, wash your hands thoroughly, disinfect the items you bought, disinfect your surfaces, and wash any reusable bags you brought with you.
