When shopping at the supermarket we abide by the two-metre spacing rule, disinfect our hands, use masks and gloves, pay by card rather than cash and do our utmost to avoid the coronavirus. And yet the supermarket still insists on rotating its fresh produce by bringing the older stock to the front. This requires the customer to move two or three items out of the way to get to goods with a reasonable date on. Just the other day I had to move out-of-date milk to get to a fresh bottle. Most people do the same, increasing the risk of passing on the virus.

I realise that stock has to be rotated but at this time handling goods should be limited.
