PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — (04-17-20) — Williams Trading University (WTU), Grocery Shopping Tips.

The specialists at said…”As we now go into our first month of sheltering-in-place here in New Jersey, the normal task of grocery shopping has become increasingly important to pre-plan with the correct safety precautions from coronavirus that leads to COVID 19. You can learn more about running essential errands from the CDC Here.

WTULearn Grocery Shopping Tips:


* Plan your shopping trip early in the morning or late at night, when store traffic is less busy. Many grocery stores are offering early hour entry for senior citizens.

* The most important thing is to wear a mask or face covering during your shopping trip.

* When you arrive at the store please make sure you disinfect the handle of your cart before touching it.

* During your Grocery shopping trip stay at least 6 feet away from others while shopping and while waiting in checkout lines.

* If your Grocery trip is a refill trip, you can use a bag from home and place your purchases into the bag instead of using a shopping cart. (Make sure, however, that the store you are patronizing allows this; some do not want outside bags entering the store.)”

* Use a credit card or debit card, this eliminates the need to handle cash at the counter.

* At the end of the shopping trip when you are back in the car, disinfect your hands, then remove your mask.

* At home, after the grocery store trip, please make sure you wash your hands, kitchen counter and any other surfaces you’ve touched. Do this after you’ve put away the groceries.

* Don’t forget to wash produce (do not use soap!) Simply rubbing fruit and vegetables under running water—and scrubbing those with hard skins—can help remove pesticides (which is a tip you should follow under normal circumstances!)

* At home, follow food safety guidelines: clean, separate, cook. There is no evidence that food or food packaging has been linked to getting sick from COVID-19.
