During this pandemic, even simple tasks that we used to take for granted have become an exercise in decision-making. One of those simple tasks is the act of shopping for necessary items. Before you even head out the door, there are plenty of things you might think about to reduce your exposure to the coronavirus.
For example, do you even need to physically go to a store? Is it possible to order the item online? If it can’t be shipped, does the store you were planning to shop at offer any local delivery or outdoor pickup services? If you do need to go to the store, could you shop during a time of day when there will be fewer people there? Could you avoid bringing anyone else in your household with you? Can you avoid visiting multiple stores, even if doing so would mean spending a little more money? It’s a strange world out there right now; hopefully, these questions can help you keep your family safe.
