Continuation of my previous blogs (extra measures during these trying times – [ https://renataveritasopinion.com/ ]
Here Victoria, Vancouver Island. Always finding new ways on how to protect myself better from carrying a nasty virus home, after grocery shopping. Not only do I always wear gloves – easily washable ones when coming home – but all items, be they food items or packaged items no matter what package (plastic, aluminium, cardboard or other) will be washed using cleaner with bleach, or better, yet, now I started to remove food items out of those containers wearing protective plastic gloves, then again wash them and then place my groceries where necessary safely elsewhere loose (outside of packages), or else then in fridge. Except yoghurt or similar, which is more difficult. Produce (fruits, vegetables and similar) will always be soaked for quite a while in vinegar/water solution). Even fruits I peel (which is most anyways).
In our stores finally now signs KEEP YOUR DISTANCE, which most customer do nicely. In the street, I always go around others keeping a fair distance.
Checkout: card readers (some stores cover up with protective plastic, some not). As I always wear gloves I can use the little keys with gloves on (see above, I wash gloves at home). Computer keyboards ? what about those ? Wipe down as well ?
Good News: After checking many stores and could not find vinyl gloves, even stronger ones (for washing everything – my fingers become sore), finally had the fantastic idea where to find them, in which of my favourite stores. [NOTE. Cannot tell, is my secret, sorry.]
QU: Is this overdoing it ???
