Safe Grocery Shopping During the Coronavirus

Social distancing and hunkering down still require most everyone to go to the grocery store and load up on whatever products haven’t been hoarded by irresponsible jerks. So what are the best practices to stay safe and lessen risks of contracting, or sharing, the COVID-19?

What follows are some super easy tips to keep you, and perhaps more importantly, others around you, from contracting this disease… or any germs, for that matter.

Wash Your Hands

Yes, you almost certainly have heard this particular tip one thousand times, but here is the 1,001 time. The best way to avoid contracting COVID-19 is still washing your hands thoroughly with hot water and soap for 20 seconds. If you are going to the market, make the last thing you do before leaving your home—and the first thing you do upon returning home—be a good hand wash. Want to wear surgical gloves? Fine, but do not let that give you a false sense of security that leads you to potentially touch your face like it’s no big deal.
