Iím thinking hand sanitizer is the way to go instead of gloves. One problem, when you have very dry skin, you can wear your hands raw. Plus stings like crazy when you get cuts in your hands from the dryness. Also, where are you getting it? The stores around here have been out of it for weeks.

I am more concerned with this frost warning tonight and covering tulips and protecting my bee splits I made. This impacts me. Fear of a virus - I do not live in fear of it.

Watch people eyes when your at the store it's kind of funny the looks people get when they see you round a corner. Reminds a guy of high noon in a bad western some scared faces like the towns people's look or the "this is MY isle!" look the stare down begins. LOL

The stores were not out of sanitizer in January when this first hit the news. You had to get it in the pharmacy and only one bottle per customer.
Our stores limited it to 50 shopping carts and each one was picked up in the parking lot and sanitized after use.....surprise surprise they are not loosing any to apartment dwellers dash and run guys.
They announced their floor people are getting an extra $2/ hour wage and 50$ week bonus if they stay on in Canada.
One grocery store had a c19 sick employee and the store was closed for 48 hours to de-sanitize.....not many line-ups there

wallet is absolutely contaminated and left at the door when returning home as are keys.

most places don't even want cash right now , so taking the check card and one credit card out as backup and only using that is a good idea as it is easier to wipe down 2 cards than it is quarantine your wallet for some.

when I am just going to one place I have my little bottle of spray 70% rubbing alcohol and lanolin oil 10:1 at 5:1 with 91% alcohol or 99% I call it case lube for reloading so I had the ingredients on hand when this stared.

haven't been able to get any additional alcohol since 3/14 so if I am going out for a big grocery run like 3/14 3/28 and 4/11 I wear gloves and use bleach spray , I also clean down the cart out in the parking lot with my bleach spray

yes as trappers most of use had a supply of gloves

the other thing people forget is their phone is contaminated once they take it out in a store.

put on a headset before you leave.

answer your calls on speaker phone. preferably answering , I am at the store and you are on speaker phone as the greeting.

or let it go to voice make and check it later

Just wipe the gloves down with a disinfecting wipe before you handle your wallet.....use the same wipe after you use the pin pad...just carry a few wipes and periodically wipe down the gloves and pay attention to what your doing when handling things that are yours when wearing them, disinfect accordingly. A good and saturated wipe will leave the gloves a little wet and allow some time for the stuff to work....small spray bottle of commercial or home brewed stuff in a pocket will do the same thing.....

Gloves serve little purpose with this virus. You don't absorb it into your skin . If you have gloves on and touch the virus then touch your face you still get the virus. When I do anything in public I have a mask on and carry 1 or 2 Clorox whips with me . I wipe down shopping cart and go about my business keeping my wipes and if I fill the need to touch my face I wipe my hands and touch my face . If something that leaves my wallet it gets wiped off before going back in. Load my car whip my hands again and toss the whip on the floorboard and go . That's about the best we can do at the moment, good luck.

Thankfully we are trappers and for most of us we are accustom to self distancing

1/3 CUP BLEACH TO ONE GALLON WATER MAKES A DISINFECTANT FOR SPRAY BOTTLES FOR USE IN HOME OR ON THE ROAD. SOAK WET WIPES IN GALLON JAR THEN PUT IN SMALLER CONTAINERS. YOUR OWN DISENFECTANT alot cheaper

that is one of the things I have been using , also have some alcohol in a spray bottle and some hydrogen peroxide in a spay bottle

but the 1/3 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water is definitely the most cost effective and available

I keep it in spray bottles around the house and one lives in my cup holder now.

I have a box of the paper towel type shop rags in the back seat of my truck

I walk through the store backwards so the germs hit my backside instead of my face.
