Wear a mask
Everyone 2 years and older should wear masks in public.
Masks should be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially around people who don’t live with you.
If someone in your household is infected, people in the household should take precautions including wearing masks to avoid spread to others
WASH your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.
Wear your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.
If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.
Make sure you can breathe easily.
Stay 6 feet away from others
Inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
Outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Wear a mask and avoid touching too many surfaces
As with all the other activities, wearing a mask is important not just because it protects you but because it also protects those around you given the possibility of asymptomatic spread. It’ll also help keep you from touching your face.
Speaking of touching, while you may be used to picking up items off the shelf just to examine them, try to limit this to only products you intend to put in your shopping basket. While picking the virus up from a surface isn’t the primary means of transmission, it’s still possible.
This goes for the handle on your cart, too. While many stores are working hard to keep them clean and sanitized, be sure to wipe the cart handle both before and after you use it for shopping, if possible. And keep a travel bottle of hand sanitizer on hand so you can give your hands a quick clean throughout your trip and as soon as you leave the store.
