Is it safe to order and eat takeout food?

ANSWER

As far as we know, no one has been infected through food. Most people would say it is safe to order out. Many restuarants now implement contactless delivery where the food is delivered and placed by the door.

The biggest piece of advice would be to wash your hands after you pick up your food or after it is delivered. Remove the packaging and discard it and then wash your hands again for 20 seconds with soap before you eat.
