I work in a grocery store about 2 days a week. could I be getting contaminated by handling the food as I scan it in at the register?

I doubt it.  Maybe a bag of flour.  Wash your hands well when you are done with your shift.  I have seen some cashiers wearing food handler type gloves.  You could take them off at the end before touching your food.  would keep you from absent mindedly biting a finger nail or something.

I do worry when I pick up a bag of flour and it puffs all over. I use hand sanitizer a lot during my shift

Gloves and a dust mask, would be my suggestion. I know our local store has a girl who is allergic to cilantro, and a few other herbs. She wears gloves while working the checkout.....Yes cilantro allergy where she breaks out in hives form touching it and working at a grocery store in Texas, not exactly a match made in heaven but she seems to have it under control.
