During a pandemic, bringing items into the home has become a little more challenging. While it is important to be aware of cross-contamination, it is also important to consider what is recommended by reputable medical professionals and our own country’s guidance.
In Canada, “There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 being spread through food or food packaging.”* This is very good news but taking precautions is still recommended.
Your groceries are still handled by essential workers; the cashiers, who may be unknowingly Covid virus carriers, so it is wise to establish safety measures once home.
When you arrive home:
Consider having a designated area upon entry where groceries can be sterilized before being placed in your cupboards or fridge.
For those at risk who may not like to venture to a store, retail grocery chains have greatly improved their internet shopping services so customers can purchase food on line and access their orders via curbside pick up or a home delivery service. Food shopping has certainly been transformed over the last year providing consumers with proficient options. Safe shopping everyone!
