Effective Ways To Shop Safe.
1) Focus On People Not On Food.
Many people went to grocery stores to buy needed stuff and do not pay proper attention to the folks inside the store. So always pay attention to people instead of food because experts of NPR suggest that the most significant risk of getting affected by flu is when people come to shop food and present inside the store with other people who may be infected.
The majority of transmission is through respiratory droplets. When an infected person coughs or sneezes on the grocery items, the healthy person caught the infection, which leads to death prone disease.
2) Avoid Going To Crowds
Always go to the grocery stores, which have limited numbers of shoppers and allowed to go in at one time because it’s easy to maintain the six feet gap to practice the social distancing in the store.
And ones you enter the stores, be as quick as possible, buy the needed stuff, and come out to minimize the risk. Be respectful to other people; maintain the social distancing while going out also.
3) Cover Your Face
Recently the person infected before showing the symptoms; this is why the centers of disease control and prevention suggest covering the face in a public place with masks. Some of the stores make it compulsory to wear masks not only to protect you but protect other people from you in case you are infected.
4) Went Out Alone
It’s always the best suggestion that LuxUVC provides you, go outside alone if possible. Because taking out the whole family is putting everyone’s life in danger. That potentially raises your household infection.
For example, you have three family members living together, and all of them went out, which increases the risk. Meanwhile, if only one family member goes out to buy groceries, then family members have a low risk of getting infected.
5) Wipe Off The Hands And Carts
Always enter the store by sanitizing the door handles and wiping off the basket or cart. In current situations, many stores sanitizing with uvc led disinfection system for customers. But as per LuxUVC guidelines, carry the disinfector solution with you and wipe off the bacteria’s from baskets, trolleys, and door handles by own. Please do not touch any of the surfaces until you do not sanitize it with your hands.
Avoid using your mobiles when you into the store because cell phones are a great way from where you touch your face.
6) Avoid Using Gloves
Covering your hands with gloves is not a hygienic process; it does not make you invulnerable but can affect you more harshly. Once you touch any dirty surface with gloves, then contamination is on the gloves. LuxUVC suggests that if you want to wear gloves that make you satisfied, then use whole-house uv disinfection systems sensitize your hand before donning gloves and sanitize it after wearing gloves.
Many people prefer to go out in public wearing gloves and do a lot of activities without sanitizing their hands even once, and those activities are like eating food and talk on their phones. Instead of gloves, prefer to wash your hands before entering the store and after coming out and arriving at home.
7) Make A Space Between You And Cashier
Never get so self-centered while stepping into the store; the workers are at more risk because they interrelate with customers daily. Secure them while making 6 feet difference between the cashier and you.
Follow the social distancing rules, whether you are using self-checkout or a cashier. Some of the stores set up plexiglass counters between a customer and a billing counter. Laying out plexiglass minimize the cashier risk, especially if customer and cashier cover their face or wear the mask.
8) Pay Online When You Can
If you know paying online from Google pay or Apple pay, then go ahead with this; if not, later, you can pay with a credit card machine with a chip reader. In this situation, avoid the cash payment as much as you can because cash currency has a lot of microorganisms. Nobody knows the duration of coronavirus on the cash, so avoid high-touch areas and pay online. And if you can’t follow these processes, then keep on sanitizing your hand after the transaction.
