Shopping for Essential Items

Wear a cloth face covering to slow the spread of coronavirus. Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:

• Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
• From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic).

Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. Learn more

While shopping for groceries and other household essentials during COVID-19:

  • Order items online or over the phone. Get them delivered or pick up curbside.
  • Ask for deliveries to be left on your doorstep to avoid person-to-person contact.
  • After getting food/items, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
