How about fetching your paper from your driveway, removing it from the plastic bag, and then washing your hands?

Why stop there ... perhaps the USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc. should stop all deliveries of everything to homes. <kidding, of course>

Perhaps you could cancel your subscription to The Daily Sun if this concerns you so much.

Are you going to carry wipes and wash your dishes and drink glasses when a server bring them Or wipe down all your purchased store items after the clerk scans them

Newspaper, what is used in case of an emergency delivery of a baby. You must really be in panic mode, if you think your newspapers are out to get you

I purchased 2,000 disposal gloves from Amazon $11.99 ( 500) per box, free delivery. I carry them everywhere. Very useful playing Pickleball, especially after the match ends I shake hands, where others have stopped that practice, they touch paddles or elbows.

Some of my neighbors liked my idea so they have ordered them. It's catching on. I have now ordered 2 more boxes, I shake a lot of hands, no elbow greetings for me !

Unless you have long arms you are not following the 6 foot rule.

I saw on the news today that tapping feet is another way for greeting someone. Looks like a new dance!

Well aren’t you the clever one! So, you shake person 1 with your gloved hand, then shake person 2’s hand passing germs from person 1. Then shake 3 passing 1 and 2’s germs, and on and on. Brilliant.

Avoiding people could be the best greeting!
