With this pandemic currently going on, one of the things that are surely on everyone’s mind is staying safe and healthy, especially while doing groceries and getting essentials for the home.
As we all know by now, there’s no harm in taking extra precautions—with these tips, you can minimize the risks you take while shopping for groceries:
- Wear full protective equipment
While sometimes, wearing a face mask can be enough, you might also want to consider wearing a full set of protective gear. Face shields and gloves can definitely help with reducing the risk of contracting illnesses.
- Go during off-peak hours and days
If possible, you should try going to the supermarket when there are fewer people around. Try going to the store on weekdays and during early mornings to avoid the rush of shoppers.
- Keep a list and stick to it
The less time you spend in the actual grocery store, the better. Before going to the supermarket, make a list of all the items you really need so you know where to go and finish shopping quickly. Sticking to your list also helps you in preventing unnecessary purchases.
- Avoid using cash and disinfect your items
If you’re able to, consider paying for your groceries either with card or other forms of contactless payment. Paper money has a higher risk of carrying viruses and diseases, so the less contact with other people, the better. Don’t forget to disinfect your hands as well as the items you bought with alcohol or disinfectant sprays!
- Shop for your groceries online
For those who really want to stay the safest while still getting the things they need, online shopping is always an option. Most brands are already available from your favorite online stores. All you need to do is wait for your orders, disinfect the products once they arrive, and they’re ready to use!
One such brand that’s now available online is NutriAsia—with an online store on both Lazada and Shopee, you can now shop for your trusted and beloved Silver Swan, Datu Puti, UFC, Golden Fiesta, Mang Tomas, Locally, Papa, and Jufran food products in the safest way possible!
