At-home grocery delivery services are one of the benefiting businesses amid the coronavirus spread.  More and more residents are using services like Instacart, of course.

Instead of going to the grocery stores themselves, people are sending delivery services in an attempt to curb their exposure. It is recommended that older groups and those with underlying health conditions use these home delivery services. 

Some ways to prevent the virus in your home and when dealing with food is using dish soap to wash plastic, glass and metal containers before storing them, washing your hands, counters and other surfaces that you touch, and washing produce with running water.

According to consumer reports, if you are using a delivery service the best practices are avoiding direct hand contact, tipping electronically and ordering earlier than you normally would because of the high demand for the service.

If you are braving the store, then be sure to shop at less busy times, bring germicide with you and use a debit or credit card versus cash to deduce the amount of contact.
