As restaurants begin to reopen their doors to customers post-COVID, many people are still wary about health and safety issues. Luckily, the coronavirus is incapable of being spread through food, as the most common mean of transmission is through respiratory droplets. If going out to eat at a restaurant, you should minimize your contact and with others through social distancing to lower the risk of catching COVID-19. Also, be sure to look at infection trends in your community before going to eat in public.
- The Coronavirus does not spread through food like other diseases and viruses, it is a respiratory illness that is spread through droplets from people being around you.
- Before going out to eat, you need to think about your family and weigh the risk of their exposure versus the safety of the location.
- If you decide to go out, still be sure to not share food items like wings, beer, and chips.
