HOW TO MINIMIZE RISK WHEN ORDERING TAKEOUT OR DELIVERY
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been consistent that there is no evidence that the coronavirus can be transmitted through food. It is “generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets” from coughing or sneezing.
There are steps you can take to protect yourself from the threat of infection from the packaging of takeout or delivery food. When you bring outside meals into the house, remove the food from the bags/packaging/containers and put it on clean dishware (use your own utensils). Then, clean and disinfect all surfaces where the packaging materials were placed, and wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and hot water before eating. If you don’t have soap and hot water available, a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol will suffice. Don’t touch your face at any point.
Remember the best way to stay safe is to keep at least six feet away from both employees and other customers to prevent the spread of the virus. Restaurants and delivery services are keeping this in mind. Delivery companies such as DoorDash, Postmates and Uber Eats offer contactless delivery where a driver will drop off your order at a designated area. Similarly, some restaurants allow customers to pick up their orders from a counter, thereby avoiding contact with an employee.
