Food or Grocery Shopping

Taking Extra Care While Food or Grocery Shopping During a Global Pandemic


Much of the world is under lockdown as a direct result of the spread of the virus. Physical distancing is, for the moment, the only known method to stop it from spreading and killing more people.

But physical distancing means you’ll be unable to carry out regular, everyday tasks—such as doing grocery shopping.

Buying Groceries During a Pandemic

Buying Groceries During a Pandemic

It goes without saying that you can’t sustain yourself without groceries, even during a pandemic. You need supplies in order to continue living a healthy life. Buying fresh produce is even more important in a time like this, since you need to maintain a healthy body in order to fight the spread of the virus.

Some people have even resorted to ordering their groceries online. That’s completely fine, but we can’t all rely on online delivery services, especially in areas where stores aren’t taking the proper delivery precautions.

Does this mean you’ll have to go without your groceries for as long as the virus persists?

No sir.

Buying Groceries During the Pandemic and Staying Safe

It’s expected that the coronavirus pandemic isn’t just going to change how we buy groceries now. The virus will change how we buy groceries forever. Here’s how you can ensure you’re doing it right—and safe:

  • Schedule your trips to the store and make sure you aren’t going over and over. Once or twice a month should suffice. Make a list of essential items you need, and keep updating this list as you go. The object is to reduce the number of trips you make to the mart.
  • DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE!Seriously, we can’t emphasize this enough. The virus finds its way into your respiratory tract through your eyes, ears, mouth, and nostrils. During and after the trip you make to your nearest Walmart, resist touching your face, keep a hand sanitizer in your purse all the time, and also wear a face mask since that significantly reduces the risk.
  • Don’t take everyone to shop. Especially if there are high-risk people at home (such as children, the elderly, or sick people), leave them behind. It’s better if one person (preferably the healthiest) is designated for the job.
  • Be mindful of what you’re touching. Try not to touch a lot of things.Touch only what you intend to put into your cart. Now is not the time for inspection.
  • Change and shower immediately after returning from the trip. Dispose of the clothes and take a shower. Also be sure to sanitize your car and all the surfaces you have touched since the trip: the steering wheel, your wallet, your cards, and so on.
