Americans are getting used to a new normal with rules and best practices to minimize their exposure to COVID-19. People are wearing masks and face shields, using gloves, and keeping their distance in public places. Handwashing has almost become an art form.
As people become more aware of keeping the coronavirus at bay, we’re thinking about many ordinary tasks in new ways. Before we touch anything from a bank ATM to a doorknob, we’re thinking about how to do so safely. One regular task that’s under new scrutiny is refueling or recharging your vehicle. Historically, unless they can recharge an EV or plug-in hybrid at home, people have been forced to use public gas pumps and charging stations. But now, refueling or recharging safely in the time of COVID-19 has become a big deal.
