Prepare a list of essentials to avoid multiple visits to the market.
Keep a sanitizer handy with you and avoid touching surfaces.
Sanitize or wash hands after touching shopping carts, handles, or payment machines.
Try to make cashless payments as the exchange of currency can be a potential risk factor.
Use disposable gloves if you have them.
Once back home, leave the shopping containers outside or in the balcony for a few hours.
Groceries must be washed with water. Anything that you bring from outside has to be considered to be potentially infected.
Before washing groceries, do wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
Make sure that you discard the container of groceries in a closed dustbin. This should be done after washing your hands. After having discarded the container, wash your hands again.
Wash your hands before and after cooking vegetables.
For unwrapped fresh goods, which could have been handled by anyone - wash thoroughly under running water and leave to dry. You can use fruits/ vegetable cleansers or you may soak fruits, vegetables in diluted vinegar, salt or lemon water for a few hours and then leave to dry.
Your biggest risk from groceries and coronavirus is the time that you spend in the grocery store around people, so keep your visits short and sorted.
