Non-essential businesses, often described as every physical place of business outside of medical care facilities, pharmacies and grocery stores, are closed on a mass scale. However, this doesn’t mean they cannot conduct business. Shop your favourite local fashion boutiques via Instagram or their online stores and continue supporting businesses such as restaurants by ordering delivery via your preferred apps or by calling the restaurants directly. Whenever you shop online, ask yourself if you could be buying that book from a local book store’s website instead, or if your groceries could come from a smaller supermarket instead of that larger chain store. After every in-person shopping session or e-commerce delivery, take all of the necessary precautions to sanitize food packages (ask the delivery person to leave the food at your doorstep). The same precautions apply to buying clothing, home goods and other products. For items that would be damaged by disinfecting products, put them securely aside to wait until they can no longer present a danger to you; wash hands thoroughly after storing your products. If a business hasn’t historically sold online or by phone, call or check their social media channels. Many small businesses have shifted to selling from afar in light of the crisis.
