While it used to be a relatively simple part of your weekly routine, these days a trip to the grocery store or leaving the house to shop for other essential items has become a significant challenge. In addition to wearing a mask and practicing social distancing, here are a few things you might do while you’re at the store to help keep yourself free from COVID-19:
- Sanitize your hands as often as possible, including when going into or leaving a store. Avoid touching your face with unwashed or unsanitized hands.
- Use disinfecting wipes or sanitizer to wipe off carts, basket handles, or card readers.
- Minimize how many products you touch, with the goal of touching only the items that you intend to buy.
- If it’s possible to do so, use a touchless payment method when checking out. If you do need to handle cash or some other payment method, sanitize your hands soon afterward.
