COVID-19 Protocols for Grocery Delivery
At TimeSquared, our team is committed to providing the best possible Concierge and Errand Service to our clients. In this time of concern over the Coronavirus, more than ever, we are fully aware of the precautions that must be taken to ensure the safety of the food deliveries we provide. We are monitoring the daily updates from Health Canada and government agencies and doing our utmost to adhere to all of the guidelines presented.
We can be extremely grateful for the initiatives taken here in Canada to minimize our risk and are thankful to everyone doing their part. Grocery stores are doing an amazing job of making their stores as safe as possible for customers and are doing things like installing plexiglass barriers between customers and cashiers, marking 2 metre spaces on the floor for line-ups, monitoring customers in the store to ensure safe distances are maintained, setting up handwashing stands inside entry doors, providing disposable gloves and disinfecting shopping carts and baskets between customers. But of course there are still concerns.
According to the latest news from Health Canada, there is so far no evidence that food or food packaging is a likely route for the transmission of the virus. While it is true that food packaging could potentially carry COVID-19 if it has come in contact with an infected person, the most likely form of transmission remains person-to-person contact.
To limit the possibility of any contact with the virus, your TimeSquared Concierge team takes the following precautions while we shop for your groceries:
When groceries arrive at your door, here are some additional precautions that you can take to reduce your risk even further:
We are reminded daily that the ultimate risk of infection is dependent on our interaction and proximity to individuals who may potentially be infected with the Coronavirus and therefore Social Distancing is our top priority.
It is important to minimize touch points with other people so that food is handled by the smallest number of people possible. In addition, limiting the number of people physically going to grocery stores can only help to minimize these contact points. This is why grocery shopping services like TimeSquared are the best option at this unprecedented time.
Please be assured that at TimeSquared, our deepest desire is to keep everyone safe and healthy and that we are doing our part to minimize the risk and “flatten the curve”.
Do take good care and be strengthened knowing that “We are all in this together”.
