“Based on the requirements of the State of New Jersey, we remind all shoppers to wear facial coverings in the grocery store,” said Linda Doherty, president and CEO, New Jersey Food Council. “We also ask that you shop alone to reduce crowds and always practice social distancing. Use your eyes to inspect items, not your hands. Discard gloves, wipes and masks in the trash; and, please remember, to thank your grocery heroes serving you.  Let’s work together to ensure the safest shopping experience for all New Jersey residents.”
