Grocery Shopping

1. Keep your distance
2. Don't touch your face until washing hands
3. Wash hands frequently

Dr. Daniel Winetsky, infectious diseases fellow at Columbia University Irving Medical Center

"Just try not to touch your face while shopping, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after you are done."

Dr. Winetsky agreed that the risk of contamination from jars, cans or other containers “is infinitesimally small” and that you have to balance risk with anxiety. “I would not do this myself or really recommend it to other people,” he said. “This level of anxiety about sanitation can be harmful in and of itself.”
