Social Dilemma-Do You Still Wipe Down All Your Newly Purchased Groceries

Today's social dilemma came about after a news story about new recommendations from the CDC about wiping down groceries. For all this time, I've been coming home with my groceries, and wiping them all down in my garage, leaving the ones I don't need out in the garage for three days because that's how long the virus can live on some surfaces, and then bringing them inside. That was the recommendation. But yesterday, a new recommendation came out but this is the new info. The Coronavirus does not spread easily by touching contaminated surfaces or objects.....but it may be possible. What the heck does that mean? Should I wipe stuff down or not? Basically they said that the main way the virus is spread is person to person contact so social distancing by at least six feet and wearing a mask is the best way to prevent it, along with washing hands often. Apparently, even though the virus lives on a surface for up to three days, it may not be infectious for that long. But it's still possible. I know it's a new virus and and so we're all learning, but what will you do from now on? Will you wipe down your groceries? Have you been doing that? Or do you just bring them into the house with no problem? I've been wiping them down but now I'm rethinking. What do you think? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
