How can you #ShopSmart?

1. Wear a mask that completely covers your nose and mouth

Always wear a mask when you shop that covers your nose and mouth.

2. Practice social distancing in stores

Whether you’re standing in line or asking a worker for assistance, keep at least 6ft between yourself and others.

3. Make a list before you shop

A prepared shopping list will minimize your time in the store and can reduce exposure.

4. Minimize your time in the store

Shop alone if possible. Reducing the number of people in the grocery store helps both you and your grocery workers.

Biden Administration Executive Order on Mask-Wearing

On January 20,  2021, then President Joe Biden announced his COVID-19 relief plan to make critical investments in protecting and supporting America’s essential workers. 

One of the administration’s most recent Executive Orders encourages widespread mask-wearing consistent with CDC guidelines and applicable law. The mandate requires mask-wearing in federal buildings and on public lands while requiring all federal employees and contractors to wear masks while on duty. To date, this mandate applies to places under federal jurisdiction, but it urges the general population to wear masks to slow the spread of the virus.
