Grocery shopping. During the lock down, you may have to be around other people during grocery shopping. Use hand sanitizer before entering the store and after finishing the shopping. Maintain physical distance. The biggest risk of transmission of COVID-19 is being around individuals who carry the virus. Minimal distance recommended to avoid droplet transmission from another person is 6 feet, however, the research has shown that the smallest droplets carrying the virus can travel much further than that and up to 8 meters. Avoid isles with other shoppers. Come prepared with the list and spend minimal time grocery shopping. When in produce section, avoid touching produce. Do not come to the store if symptomatic.
