Still wiping down your grocery store purchases? Coronavirus risk is ‘exceedingly small,’ experts say

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many people cleaned grocery-store purchases with disinfecting wipes before putting them away at home.

At that point it was recommended as a best practice to avoid contagion. The thinking was that because the virus can survive on surfaces for short periods of time, someone could touch a contaminated item and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth and possibly infect themselves.

Now, however, a lot more is known about how COVID-19 spreads — primarily from person to person through droplets in the air. The risk of getting it from surfaces, including grocery packaging, is “exceedingly small,” said Melissa Bronstein, senior director of infection prevention for Rochester Regional Health and a registered nurse.

The most up-to-date information on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that “because of the poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there

ENDO Ethos Hemp Store Opens In Huntington

HUNTINGTON, NY — ENDO Ethos, a hemp CBD retailer, is open for business in Huntington Village. CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol, is commonly used for stress and anxiety, pain, sleep and inflammation.

Husband and wife owners Clark and Chrissy Ruggeri held the soft opening of their second ENDO Ethos location on Aug. 1. The 289 Main St. location is in the heart of the village and is a larger space than their flagship Northport shop. The couple signed their lease in November — before the coronavirus outbreak. The pandemic’s harsh impact on merchants made them consider backing out on the lease, Chrissy said. Ultimately, they felt their products would benefit customers at a time some need them most.

“We decided there’s no better time than now, as people are struggling with stress and anxiety, and trying to boost their health naturally,” Chrissy told Patch. “Now we’re trying to build some

Your Grocery Store Shopping Strategy During the Coronavirus Crisis

Almost every state now has an order for its residents to stay at home to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. One of the only reasons Americans can leave the house during this time is to stock up on essentials at the grocery store — but the thought of shopping for groceries can be anxiety-inducing.

Opt For Delivery If You Can

If it’s possible for you to buy groceries online via Instacart, Amazon Fresh or another delivery service, that’s probably your safest bet.

“Grocery shopping could be challenging in times of viral outbreak as it exposes people to potential pathogens on surfaces and other shoppers that may be carriers,” said Tatiana Larionova, MS, LDN, CNS, a medical advisor for eMediHealth. “Online

Grocery Store Shortages Make Life During the Pandemic Even Harder for People With Food Allergies and Intolerances

When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease over 10 years ago, the options I found for gluten-free products were minimal; when they did exist, they were often tasteless and incredibly expensive. In the decade since, gluten-free sections have become the norm in many grocery stores, providing a wide range of options for the one in 100 people worldwide with celiac disease like me. I felt confident that there would always be convenient options readily available to me. Then the coronavirus came.

As word of a potential shut down spread in early March, I, like many others, went to the grocery store to stock up on my essentials—but I was too late. The shelves I had relied on for years were barren except for an occasional misplaced item, discarded without care as people stockpiled on supplies. In the months since, the gluten-free products I need have occasionally appeared, often with

Jason Wu Opens Freestanding Store in Shanghai

Click here to read the full article.

While most companies are rethinking and often retrenching their retail strategies, Jason Wu has opened his first global stand-alone boutique in Shanghai.

Originally slated for last year, the opening at the IFC Mall was bumped due to delays with designs and negotiations for the right space. “It happened to be this season; I have to say we were quite lucky. If we opened last year, it would have been a very different conversation,” the designer said.

Noting there has been “a lot of very confident shopping in China” in recent months as stores have reopened amidst COVID-19, Wu said Shanghai is “mostly back to normal.” While the pandemic kept him away from last week’s soft opening for friends, family and special clients, Wu said the store was a year in the making. “Having a little bit of good news in 2020 is not

How The Coronavirus Has Affected What We Buy At The Grocery Store

As the major effects of the coronavirus pandemic make themselves apparent ― the ubiquity of masks and hand sanitizer, restaurants serving at half capacity ― other, more subtle changes are still just coming into focus.

Take the grocery store. Doorstep delivery and online shopping, already popular before COVID-19, have become part and parcel of a business model that once relied almost exclusively on brick-and-mortar stores. Moreover, the pandemic appears to have affected not just where and how we buy food, but what we’re actually eating.

Two simultaneous trends in our consuming habits are becoming clear. Many Americans are buying products they believe will boost their immune systems, in the hopes of fending off disease. At the same time, rising levels of anxiety and stress have pushed some to seek solace in the things they eat, resulting in an uptick in sales of comfort food. This raises the question: Will

Can shopping malls survive the coronavirus pandemic and a new slate of permanent store closings?

Just when many shopping malls had finally figured out how to adapt to the era of digital retail, the coronavirus pandemic upended everything.

Having seen their recent move toward dining, entertainment, fitness and personal services come to a screeching halt – a pivot that was supposed to help them survive the Amazon age – malls throughout America are suddenly running out of time.

With J.C. Penney trying to avoid liquidation, smaller retailers closing or requesting rent relief, and venues like theaters still temporarily shut down due to COVID-19, anywhere from 1 in 4 malls to 1 in 2 could go out of business altogether, analysts projected.
