Running a grocery store safely during COVID-19 isn't easy. Some stores have been forced to close due to outbreaks.
But one customer took to social media when he saw a sign on shopping carts at Freshco's store in Regent Park asking customers to use the disinfectant and paper towels provided to wipe down the carts.

He would not comment further on the photos posted on social media.
