Yeah, what Graciano said.

You’re unlikely to get people to suddenly stop fondling figs, pawing pawpaws, or massaging melons, and while disposable gloves might help they’d also be unlikely to be used–think about it, you’d have to take off the gloves you’re currently wearing, find a safe place to put them, put on other gloves, then reverse the whole process–good luck getting everyone to do that.

Your best bet is to just wash your fruits and veggies once you get home–washing in plain water is just fine, by the way, no need to use soap or anything.
