      I agree they are just still finding stuff out, I cooked in Las Vegas hotel for 13 years. I have seen some nasty cooks and poor hygiene. Im ok cooking my on food. I dont want others touching, and coughing on my food. Then have some stranger (GRAB) put my food in his sealed infected car as he its my French fries with infected hands. Good luck to everyone. Peace

    • Don’t risk it

    • Cooking disinfects. So does the microwave I think

    • Ive read to stay away from cold items like a sald bar, but cooking disinfects. It’s been advised to microwave the food when you get home.

      Personally, I’m too paranoid to eat out. They don’t have all the information yet.

  6. Stay safe, stay home, wash hands, keep social distance, wash hands again.

  7. Do you think we are unknowingly creating a super virus with all the disinfecting? idk Better safe than sorry

      Bag of rocks, please don’t talk. Stay, a bag of rocks. The threat is with ANTIBIOTICS GIVEN TO ANIMALS!!! You know Sheep. If you’re not a Rock. You’re a Sheep! I don’t speak Dummy.

    • Not at all, none

  8. Disinfecting wipes are IMPOSSIBLE to find. =(

    • Tardisius As are alcohol, bleach, and anything else that can disinfect. Ppl who hoard are so incredibly selfish.

    • @maremacd still hard to find. Been trying for weeks. Shelves are always empty

    • Pine-sol or Mr clean and water is a good alternative. They disinfect.
      Make a few cups or a gallon in a bucket or large bowl, with a wash cloth. Or make a 50-50 mix in a spray bottle. A few cups can do the whole house. Counters, doorknobs, remotes, faucets, incoming groceries…can’t beat it. Plus it smells good

    • Hand sanitizer too.

      Finding stuff out!!! You’re dumber than Rocks on the other post!!! Viruses and Bacteria long existed before HUMAN KIND!!! WE ARE HERE BC OF IT!!! ITS PEOPLE LIKE YOU W THAT DUMB EXCUSE AND INFATUATION W SEX ROBOTS SOCIETY LAGS BEHIND. AND DENIES TREATMENT OF THESE SO CALLED NEW VIRUSES.

  10. DUH! Are People that dumb you have to tell them how to wash their hands?

    • Some people dont realize you have to wash for 20 seconds. They think a quick rinse with water is enough.

  11. How can you not get it from shopping supplies?? The virus literally lives on metal for 4 hours

      @StalePhish If it happened so easily, everyone would be infected with viruses constantly.

    • @David Malinovsky So, you mean like the 1 million people already infected with the virus? In my local area, which is not even spreading that fast, already had at least 4 grocery store employees that tested positive and there will surely be more. While we can’t know for certain how they got it, I don’t feel it’s likely that it was from touching groceries that customers also touched.

    • @David Malinovsky Also worth pointing out, have you seen the stats on NYC transmission? Significantly more in Brooklyn area than Manhattan area. The hypothesis is that citizens of Brooklyn are closer to poverty and can’t afford to stock up, so they have to visit the grocery store more frequently and are catching it there

      @StalePhish Breakroom sink or vending machines would be the #1 suspect for me in a grocery store.

      @StalePhish I’d guess also not much true social distancing or isolation. Kids are being shuffled around between relatives. Tough to be rigid about it with schools closed.

    Nasty! You got to tell them to clean!! I’ve been wiping stuff down for YEARS!! WHO’S GROCERY STORE IS THIS. I THOUGHT THERE WAS A SHORTAGE???

  13. David Malinovsky | April 1, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

    There are no wipes, tissues, paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer or hand soap (there’s body wash, which works just as well) at any market and likely won’t be until September.

  14. And don’t be rude and a-holes to employees that are working to provide what’s needed for the customers, and if the shelf is empty……. Is because the item is completely out of stock, and no! There is nothing hiding in the back of the store, and one thing too, don’t bring the entire family shopping!!! That defeats the point of social distancing its not a field trip, the mask is supposed to be worn at all times when you walk into the store till you get into your car…….. What’s the point in using a mask if you are going to take it off for using the cell phone or if you see a person that you might know, how the heck do you know if that person is not infected!? On top of that you are touching every single item out there and then you touch the mask to put it back on people are so so clueless.

    Does CR recommend wearing a mask or gloves when grocery shopping?

  16. Thank you China

  17. Its very hard to maintain a 6-foot distance in the grocery stores due to the arrogance of some men who say youre in their way and the privileged attitude of some females who think they have a right to reach right in front of you to get an item while youre staying 6 feet back from the person in front of you. The stores need to start denying service to anyone who acts like this. Its the only way to keep it from spreading in the grocery stores. This has happened to me during an off-peak time!!
