• Stay six feet away from others while shopping and in lines. • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering while in public. • Go during hours with fewer people will be there, early am or night. • High Risk for severe illness? Store may have special hours. • Disinfect the shopping cart. • DO NOT TOUCH your eyes, nose and mouth. • Use touchless payment, if possible • If you handle money or use a card, use hand sanitizer right after paying.
