Subject: BS: New rules for Grocery shopping
The one exposure we may all face is food shopping

Since the virus can survive on plastic for 3 days and about one day on cardboard it would be less risk to isolate grocery store items for 4 days before unpacking. If something needs refridgertion, wipe down wih sanitizer before bringing it in.

Advice: Don't go.
If you must, protect yourself with gloves and a silly mask. Sillier the better.

Did you really need that jar of mayonaise?
Sure this is an abundance of caution and others will have different numbers for the virus but very bit helps. People will avoid you with social distancing.


What to buy: enjoy yourself
