Any recommendations where some basic shopping supplies can be bought locally? Have any shops applied procedures to allow us to keep away from each other? A list of these and what the procedures are, advertised on here, may lead others to follow suit.

Perhaps if you do suggest somewhere, you could add what they usually stock.

In my experience shops do allow only one or two people in the shop at a time but people cannot get it into their head to allow space between each other whe lining up outside.

Last friday Roses outside line was down the street but all bunched up together also Moxons had the same problem.

Its people not shops and if you read the thread on Dulwich Park today you can see people do not care.

Sadly it will be too late for many of them, but even worse, too late for the many others they have infected during the time they were incubating CV and had no symptoms.

ETA: Although come to think of it, these two groups overlap .....

The owner of the small independent shop next to Funeral Directors next to the Plough is the only one I have seen in the area who wears gloves and a mask. It's a very small shop so will be for basic supplies only. As of yesterday he had good coffee, rice and a small selection of fresh fruit and veg so it's a great option if you wish to top up basic supplies. He was closed today so I went to local Sainsbury's next door. There the staff wears no protection and doesn't respect social distancing AT ALL. The way the shop is laid out it's really hard to navigate without bumping into each other. Why when independent local shops are closing their doors or imposing a queueing system outside their shops - should one of the leading UK supermarket not instigate strict safety rules for their staff to follow?

There's an app that tells you official hygiene ratings for all the shops near you. Not specifically a guide to covid-19-related hygiene, but I think it's safe to assume the more hygienic shops are safer than the less hygienic ones.

The app's called 'Scores On the Doors'.

I think the issue may be more on circulation space within a store and the store's policy on numbers - most food is packaged so the problem is with proximity to other people. Most local/ corner shops have maximised their stocking space so minimising circulation. That may be their problem.
