CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta offered viewers of CNN's global town hall some practical advice on how safely shop for groceries during the coronavirus pandemic.
First, make your visit as brief as possible.
"The key is, plan ahead, plan your list," said Gupta, showing off his own shopping list.
Next, make your visit as short as reasonably possible.
"Get in, get out, as soon as possible," said Gupta in a short video demonstrating a visit to his own local store. "You need to be efficient in the store and think about every surface you might touch. You do not want to dilly-dally."
Next, try to limit your contact with items you aren't purchasing.
"Think about yourself as a SWAT team member," he said. "Get in, get out, leave as little trace of yourself as possible ... Don't touch anything you are not going to buy. Be very focused."
Finally, Gupta reminded viewers of what's coming up on Sunday. "Don't forget to buy some flowers for Mother's Day!" he said.
