Since businesses are starting to reopen, there are more options for shopping for essential items than there were in just the past few weeks. As you go out, though, what are some things you might keep in mind to keep you and your family safe? Here are a few:
- Think about going to the store at a less busy time of day. If you can’t make use of delivery services or online shopping and you must go to a store in person, you could also try limiting the number of people in your family that will go.
- Try to visit as few stores as possible – maybe even buying everything you need at one location. This may mean a slight price increase, but it could do a lot to prevent exposure.
- Touch only the items you intend to buy, and use a touchless payment method if possible. While you’re at the store, make good use of hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.
