Here are the Top 10 Coronavirus Safety Tips at the Grocery Store

Do not shop too often

Minimize your grocery trips to avoid contracting the virus. Try to go once a week.

Avoid peak hours

Always go for shopping in the morning.

Wipe down the cart

Carry a set of wipes with you and clean handles of the cart.

Wiping down items is optional 

It is not necessary to clean jars, bottles, and other products.

In-store social distancing 

Try to keep a safe distance in the store.

Touching fruits is low risk

It is not risky to touch fruits or vegetables before buying them.

No need to bring your own bags

Plastics bags at the stores are not handled by everyone, so in the current situation, they are the safest option.

Wipe down your countertop

Sanitize your counter where you put grocery bags, as the virus stays longer on hard surfaces.

Do not wash products with soap

You can get sick if you wash fruits and vegetables with soap.

Wash your hands

Make a habit of washing hands.
