Regarding shopping - Safety measures vary from store to store. At synka, they will disinfect your shopping cart, and give you plastic gloves. But I still feel unsafe, because there are a lot of people using the store throughout the day, and some of them don't understand social distancing just yet. Thankfully I have not been sneezed on! The synka that I go to has a bathroom outside, with footpedals to activate the taps...great! They even fixed the soap dispenser.
It's easier to socially distance at a wholesaler, but The Mart did not disinfect anything, and do not provide hand protection, so bring your own (if so inclined).
The police at the checkpoint touched my phone. Sure they were wearing gloves, but those gloves would also be touching other phones / passports and so on. Of course I was just trying to help, and didn't think of it at the time, but I won't let them touch my phone again. On the other hand, the officer was nice enough to tell me to engage the parking brake, as some other people had caused an "accident", for this reason. Some checkstops are on a steep incline, keep that in mind..
As per usual, I knew about the checkstop about 300 meters beforehand, due to drivers flashing their lights at me.
Putting my tinfoil hat on, I noticed that on the day that the original social distancing rules were imposed (sorry, I cannot remember the date, but it must have been around March 16), my tap water went brown with silt for a few hours. This was awful, and made a mess of my shower, but it cleared up before the end of the day. It has been clear ever since, but I have noticed an increased chlorine odor. Has the water supply been adjusted, possibly in relation to the Pandemic?
