Media Release: Unite Against COVID-19 - NZ Government

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.
