‘I’ve been invisible this entire time and now we matter’: A day in the life of a 22-year-old supermarket worker during the coronavirus outbreak

Supermarket workers in the UK have been classified as “key workers” in the coronavirus pandemic, meaning they must continue going to work to keep the country running.
Staff were thrown into hostile situations when panic-buying reached its peak in March, though things have since calmed down. The UK has extended its lockdown into May.
Business Insider spoke to Charlotte Gilgallon, 22, who works in online deliveries at a Sainsbury’s store in Glasgow, Scotland.
Her shifts last from 4 a.m. to 12 p.m., five days a week, and she comes into contact with “maybe 300 people every day.”
She also shared her family’s “game plan” to ensure she is disinfected the moment she gets home to avoid getting anyone else sick.
Here’s what a day in her life is like — from 3:30 a.m. wake-up calls to hectic shifts to intense disinfection when she gets home.
