People are now using home delivery systems to buy goods in the wake of the corona virus outbreak. However, the authorities said that children should not be allowed to interact with people who come to deliver. The measure is part of a precautionary measure to prevent children from becoming ill. In addition, the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority is conducting a social media campaign to raise awareness on proper food preparation and the precautions to be taken when ordering online.
Fewer online payments should be encouraged for cash transactions when purchasing goods. Officials also say that care must be taken to pay the exact amount if it is to be paid in cash. Those who are going to buy groceries from supermarkets should make a list of items to buy so as not to spend extra time there. The instruction says to buy the goods and return immediately.
