Going Shopping During COVID-19
This resource provides a visual guide for individuals with autism about going shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic. An animated version of the social story is also included.
There are new rules to follow when going shopping.
I put on my mask before going into the store and I stay 6 feet away from others inside the store.
I only touch the things I am buying.
If someone is near something I need, I can wait until they move away.
There may be arrows and marks on the floor showing where to stand when checking out.
When I get home from the store, I wash my hands for 20 seconds.
