How to Protect Yourself From Coronavirus.

When Grocery Shopping.

Experts say that first of all you should avoid crowded places. Or you can order goods by delivery option. There are some simple steps you can take to try to limit your exposure to coronavirus.

1. Use alcohol to wash off all the products. This way you eliminate the risk of coronavirus because it tears apart its outer barrier. If that's not practical, wash your hands well after putting away all packaging, including paper boxes and bags. "It all comes down to hand hygiene," says Liz Garman, a spokesperson for the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology in Arlington.

2. Wash your hands, counter, and every other surfaces after you've put away the groceries. Keep in mind that using a disinfectant isn’t necessary unless you’re sharing a space with someone who is exhibiting signs of respiratory illness or has been exposed to the virus.

3. Wash grocery with soap and water. Because COVID-19 is from a family of viruses very likely deactivated by contact with soap and water, washing your fruit and vegetables with soap and water should eliminate any live virus.

4. Avoid a direct hand-off. Arrange to have the items delivered to your doorstep or a place nearby instead. Super markets added that option last week; other companies have a way to indicate special delivery instructions on their order forms.

5. Go earlier than you usually do. Though it's not a safety issue, you may find that in the midst of higher demand you have to wait longer and expose your self to a  crowded super market.

6. Take germicide with you. Use it to wipe your hands and the cart before and after you shop. Avoid using gloves ,you gather dirt and you transfer it all the way with you .
