During this COVID-19 outbreak, you may be staying at home to avoid contact, taking care of loved ones who are sick, or putting yourself in self-quarantine. As you might wonder, is it safe to order food and groceries through delivery service?
Yes, CDC and FDA say it is still safe, and less risk for deliveries than person-to-person contact. These delivery services changed rapidly to keep up with this COVID-19 pandemic and maintain businesses with restaurants and grocery stores.
There are a variety of app-based food and grocery delivery services such as:
– Uber Eats
People can take advantage of this online service since most of these companies waive delivery fees to support restaurants and provide free meals to healthcare workers and first responders. More and more food delivery services now switch to “no-contact” or “leave at my door” drop off services, to minimize the chance of spreading and acquiring the virus. Some apps will allow customers to specifically instruct the driver where to leave your food and to take pictures of your preferred location so drivers will know where.
