Health and safety recommendations to safeguard our community

Skipcart and its partners are community members across the US. In order to be a responsible community member, we are working with public health authorities to provide recommended steps to limit the exposure and spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are closely monitoring and providing the most up to date recommendations on how to protect yourself and others.

2019-nCoV CoronavirusCDC Fact sheet

2019-nCoV (Coronavirus) is a virus that causes the COVID-19 respiratory illness. It was first detected in Wuhan, China.

According to the CDC, “Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets. Currently, there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.”


Do your part for your community-

Care for yourself:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

****The EPA released a list of registered disinfectant products that have qualified under its emerging viral pathogen program for use again SARS-CoV-2. You can find the list here.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.


Care for others:


  • Cover your cough or sneeze - Use a tissue to cover your cough or sneeze and throw the tissue in the trash, then wash your hands. If you don't have a tissue within reach, cough or sneeze into your elbow.

  • Clean and disinfect your vehicle - Pay special attention to surfaces that you frequently come in contact with, especially during pick up and drop off delivery goods.

  • Regularly sanitize and clean hot bags as well as your hands between delivery trips to reduce the risk of contamination.

  • If you feel sick or have respiratory symptoms, voluntarily suspend the delivery services provided to Skipcart and stay at home - If your symptoms get worse, consult your doctor. If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

Stay informed. The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) are updating their sites with the latest information.
