Advice on Safe Grocery Shopping

Watch this Youtube video for excellent advice on what to do when you get home from grocery shopping – with the caveat that the CDC reports that you need to leave a bleach solution on surfaces for at least four minutes for it to kill the virus.

If you run out of household cleaning products you can make your own by adding 4 teaspoons of bleach to a quart (32 oz.) of water – or 1/3 cup per gallon. Mix the solution in a spray bottle and you are good to go. Visit the CDC Website for more more information.

Homes have begun receiving their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census . These official Census Bureau mailings will include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the Census online. R-UTN Fran LaDuca has a message to all our members concerning the census.
