23 - frequent hand washing
24 - cover coughs and sneezes
25 - Also, I would NOT plan to walk the market as usual. I would park my car close to where I plan to buy, go straight to the vendor and back to my vehicle. Get in and out.

EVEN IF THE MARKET IS OFFICIALLY OPEN, SHOP SAFE
Opening the Eastern Market is still under debated by all authorities: EMP, City, SOM in considerations regarding all Stay-at-Home & Emergency Orders from Michigan's Governor. However, due to the spread of the CoronaVirus with less than 1% of Americans have been tested–that represents a potential deadly high risk gamble. Statistically, 20 percent of all Michiganders can have the virus and are Asymptomatic carriers–not showing any symptoms. All states follow this statistical pattern, referred to as a “test-positivity rate”. Therefore, I would plan to avoid any large public gathering areas and only:
1) Visit the Eastern Market early in the mornings around 2-4am crowd density is extremely low–just a mere scattering of shoppers per SHED which provides a good safe space distancing.
2) Also, DO NOT plan to walk the market as usual. Rather, park the car close to where you plan to buy–park anywhere that early. Go straight to the vendor and back to your vehicle. "Get in and out!"
3) Think about money handling: wear gloves OR try to pay without receiving change.
