Police and supermarkets have appealed to members of the public for one person to do family shopping to help social distancing.
Since the UK went into lockdown earlier this week, supermarkets across the country have introduced new several measures, from rationing certain items to ensuring people remain two metres away from each other as often as possible.
And today, supermarkets in Stafford have appealed through the local policing team in the town to ask for one person per household to go shopping.
Posting on social media, a spokesman for the Stafford Local Policing Team said: “The supermarket stores around Stafford have asked if you can please give consideration to just one member of your family to do the shopping.
“They are working on a one in one out system to allow for social distancing whilst people shop.”
Currently food shopping is one of the only legitimate reasons for leaving the house, alongside daily exercise or going to work if it is essential or absolutely unable to be done from home.
The measure were introduced as part of the fight against the spread of coronavirus.
