Strategies to Reduce the Spread of Covid-19 - Grocery Store Edition
In today's world, taking a trip to the grocery store is a health risk. With each trip, you are increasing your risk of COVID-19 exposure as well as increasing the spread. To minimize your exposure, strategize by creating a grocery list of items that will last you for 2 weeks. If you are at high-risk or are unable to get the items you need, consider contacting family or friends to assist. Meal delivery and grocery delivery services may be available as an alternative option, and many businesses are offering additional precautions to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Plan to purchase plenty of shelf-stable and frozen ingredients. If you are concerned about produce expiring, try freezing food for later use. Food can last months in the freezer.
