5 Important Steps After Grocery Shopping To Protect You & Your Family

Kirat Kaur

As Malaysia battles the Covid-19 pandemic with a Restricted Movement Order (RMO), one stipulation is that only one representative of a family is allowed to go out to purchase daily essentials.

While many are aware of the basic protective measures of maintaining hygiene and social distancing outside the home, coming home from a supply run is just as important.

As the SARS-CoV-2 (or coronavirus in layman’s terms) is believed to survive on surfaces from 4 hours to 9 days, there is a possibility of picking up the virus from anywhere. So, the Health Ministry has issued a guideline, outlining 5 important steps to take after going grocery shopping.

Step 1: Remove your face mask, wrap it in plastic and throw away into the rubbish bin.

Step 2: Do not touch or hug children or family members.

Step 4: Shower. Thoroughly clean yourself with soap, especially your face and hands.

Step 5: Now you can meet your family!

Remember to follow the steps above to protect you and your family from Covid-19.
