Grocery shopping is usually low on the list of fun things to do. The local supermarket is now a lifeline for at least one Rome resident, 56-year-old Massimo Moi. “It’s the only time I see people in real life, ” said Moi, who has looked forward to shopping twice a week ever since Italy’s lockdown began earlier this month (March 2020). Inside shops, many retailers now require customers to wear plastic gloves, provided on entering. In Italy, some grocery stores have installed Plexiglas panels at the checkout to prevent close contact between cashiers and customers.
