German Grocery Shopping

Recommended Posts

Currently in Germany the grocery stores are limiting how many people can be in the store at once.  Once limit is reached people are only allowed in as others leave.  Before entering store you must disinfect hands and put on throw away gloves.  You must take a shopping cart.  The shopping cart helps distance you from other people.  You are allowed one liter of milk, one package of toilet paper, and meat is in short supply so prices have been raised and you are encouraged to seek other sources of protein.  All the workers in the store wear gloves and masks.  When you leave the store the shopping cart is thoroughly disinfected for the next person.  This is one reason why Germany is fast overcoming the virus outbreak.

Same procedures being followed in the U.S.  FYI. Many locations including California.

In Canada, only so many allowed in the store at one time, aisles are one direction (up one, down the next), with tape on the floor so that you wait for the person in front of you to move to the next one, lines on the floor at check out, and out our cashiers are behind Plexiglas .. no cash, .. most have curbside pick up, and/or free delivery. Limits on things that are hard to get. Senior's shopping first thing in the morning and they've raised the wages of the employees by $2.00 an hour.

One drawback: a friend in Ottawa says the plexiglass impedes hearing, so customers and staff are sticking their heads around the edges...

If you want a good education on the CV, I learned more from this video than anywhere else. 

I wish the U.S.. had such good leadership.

Meanwhile the local Walmart has posted red X's on the floors at the checkout lines...……….one meter apart !

That's a good start but needs to be above 2 meters distance based on most experts' suggestions.

Yes, that was my point
