I hope most of your have found someone who can do the grocery shopping for you and if you really do have to head to the store – go early when the store will be the cleanest and the first hour of the day is reserved for older adults and at risk populations. I don’t mean to sound crazy, but this is what we all should be doing when we get our groceries home.
Please remember that anything that comes into your home could have the virus on it, which is why washing your hands ALL the time and keeping them away from your face is so important. Even if you have not left your home in a week!! New studies are showing that the virus can live on surfaces as long as 17 days!
I guess this is not the time to worry that much about reducing plastic – it’s much easier to clean and disinfect!
I did use my cloth grocery bags and bagged my groceries myself (which I prefer anyway). Then ALL the bags went immediately into the wash once I had all my groceries put away.
Please feel free to share this with your friends and other family members.
Stay home, stay fit and stay well!!
