It might seem like a good idea to stock up on meal kits such as Hamburger Helper, but it’s important to keep in mind that there may be periods of time where you may not be able to get fresh ingredients such as ground meat or fresh milk. Instead, focus on buying non-perishable items that do not require many extra ingredients such as dry pasta, jarred sauces, and tuna cans.
While hand sanitizer is great to have on hand in a pinch, it is not as effective as washing your hands with soap and water. Washing your hands thoroughly for at least 40 seconds is the best way to disinfect your hands, according to the World Health Organization. However, if you cannot wash your hands, make sure to sanitize your hands properly and thoroughly with hand sanitizer for at least 30 seconds.
