Coronavirus Etiquette for those making trips to grocery stores, drug stores and takeout restaurants

Ridgewood NJ,  a reminder of a little “stay home”  etiquette for those making trips to grocery stores, drug stores and takeout restaurants :

from Assemblywomen Holly Schepisi :

Over the past week I have read numerous posts about people going to grocery stores, drug stores and takeout restaurants and behaving incredibly poorly. A couple of tips. 1. If you are going to the store this shouldn’t be a family field trip. Only one of you should be the designated person going in and out. The less touching, interaction, etc. the better for your family, other shoppers and the workers.

2. If you enter a store wearing gloves, a mask, etc. DO NOT THROW YOUR ITEMS on the sidewalk or in the parking lot. This is littering. This is potentially biohazard material and who do you think has to clean up your contaminated garbage? The very same workers at the store you just shopped. Bring a plastic bag with you in your car. Carefully remove your gloves and place them in the bag. Throw the bag out when you get home and immediately wash your hands.

  1. gloves discarded on Paramus Road by the college….not smart…

  2. I’ve seen lots of gloves on the ground. Probably the same people that bought out the toilet paper.
