A Smart Guide to Restaurant Takeout

A Smart Guide to Restaurant Takeout

We are all home now. With no events, no plans, no school and no office, one thing hasn't changed - we still need to eat. While restaurant dining rooms are closed, you still have an option to eat a meal from your favorite restaurant that will provide you with the comfort and warmth we all need in these difficult times. At the bare minimum ordering take out or delivery provides a change in pace and routine while supporting a struggling local business. 

You may wonder - is it safe to order in?

According to guidelines from the CDC and this Wall Street Journal article, it is safe to order in from your favorite local restaurant. There is no evidence that Covid-19 can be transmitted through food, and like grocery shopping, the main risk comes from retrieving the meal itself. Whether that means going to the grocery store, having your groceries delivered via a courier, or having your restaurant meal delivered, there is no completely hazard-free way of obtaining food. That being said, there is no greater risk in having your restaurant meal delivered as compared to having your groceries delivered. Moreover, "the risk of not eating still outweighs the risks of eating" says Donald Schaffner, an expert in microbial food safety.
