As a personal shopper, I frequent several major grocery retailers every day and while most are taking many effective precautions to keep customers safe from COVID19, there are additional measures that need to be taken.

Currently, most places are spraying and wiping down carts, self-checkouts, and counters... as well as putting up signage and roping areas to control proximity and even taking temperatures of employees; however, there are other important measures that must be implemented immediately. 

- Please (all grocery stores and other stores with aisles) make aisles ONE-WAY and allow only 3 people per aisle (or less or more depending on size of the aisle) to allow for adequate distance (6-10 feet) between shoppers. Post visable signs at the each end of the aisles instructing customers of these restrictions. 

- Also, rather than playing music, maybe this is the time to use the PA system for PSA's. Kindly remind customers to abide by the social distancing rules and recommend they choose items as quickly as possible and discourage browsing and congregating. Ask people to not block the middle of the aisles. Make recommendations for the use of masks and limited touching of items and returning them to the shelves. Educate customers as they're shopping because not everyone listens to the radio or watches the news. Many people are still in the dark when it comes to the latest stats and executive orders. 

- Lastly, for places like Target and Walmart that sell clothing, home decor, etc.; maybe it's time to limit the shopping in those areas. Customers are browsing around looking at non-essential items as if there is not a governmental stay at home order in place. 

This may sound extreme to some, but it's clear that grocery stores are now the riskiest place to be. Any and all measures that can slow the spread of COVID19 need to be taken if we want to get past this disease as soon as HUMANLY possible.
