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:
