Centers For Disease Control Takeout Recommendations

Picking up Takeout Food While Slowing the Spread of COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control recommends following the below steps to protect yourself from COVID-19 when picking up takeout food.

  • Order and pay online or over the phone when possible.
  • Accept takeout food without in-person contact or stay at least 6 feet away from others. 
  • Ask for deliveries to be left in a safe spot outside your home (such as your front porch), with no person-to-person interaction.
  • After receiving your delivery or bringing home your takeout food, wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Important Centers for Disease Control Reminder 

If you or a member of your household have signs of COVID-19:

  • Call your doctor first instead of going to the office or the emergency department.
  • Call 911 if you believe it is an emergency.
