If you’re healthy and under 70, you should go to the supermarket instead of shopping online. This will leave delivery slots free for the people who need them most.
Here are some simple tips to follow when you go to the supermarket:
shops will be doing their best to limit the number of shoppers – helping you keep 2 metres away from others
be kind to essential workers, and others you’re sharing the shop with
come prepared with a list so you can get in and out as quickly as possible
send one person from your ‘bubble’ to do the whole shop
keep 2 metres away from others, including staff – they need to keep safe too!
use a contactless card if you can, not cash
bag groceries away from others if you can
only touch what you want to buy
if you like, take a soapy towel in a small container to wipe down trolley or basket handles etc
take out produce when you get home, and rinse first in soapy water, then in clean water to remove any soap residue
wipe down packaged goods with a soapy clean towel, then drywash your hands before and after you shop.
