12 Shopping Tips for Covid19

We’ve compiled a few tips for you to consider when you venture out for your next shop.

  1. There is no need to panic-buy. Limit shopping trips to once a week. This reduces the risk of contracting the disease or spreading it to others.
  2. Make a comprehensive shopping list before your shop that will last you a week.
  3. Make good use of your freezer to store perishable items.
  4. Be aware of the control measures in place by supermarkets.
  5. Clean and sanitise your hands before you enter and when you leave the store. Sanitise your trolley or basket. Take your own sanitiser just in case.
  6. Maintain a 2m social distance rule in-store, with staff and other shoppers.
  7. Avoid contact with surfaces as much as possible.
  8. Make sure you buy things you know you will use to avoid food wastage and stockpiling.
  9. Use the same hand to pick up produce and sanitise your hands after leaving the supermarket. Wash and sanitise your hands again once home.
  10. Designate a disinfected area to sort your shopping. Remove outer food packaging and discard. Wipe all tins and hard surface packs using a paper towel and warm soapy water or sanitiser.
  11. Pack away your shop, wipe down the fridge, cupboard handles and surfaces with sanitiser or warm soapy water using a paper towel and discard.
  12. Wash your hands again after you have finished packing away your shop.

Stay safe and healthy.
