My friend in California posted a link to an interesting article about how customers bringing their own ecologically-friendly bags to supermarkets and other retail outlets will have to fill them themselves due to COVID-19 fears. The markets have banned their employees from filling the bags of customers who bring their own.

It seems that some stores are even offering free paper or plastic bags to customers. The idea behind this seems to be that reusable bags can be a source of virus transmission. The store workers are allowed to fill the free bags supplied by the stores themselves.

All of this comes just as Japan kicks off its campaign to push reusable bags!
