Yes, online food delivery can be safe this 2020 if people would follow the needed health protocols. For example, the various food delivery apps will make sure that their different employees will follow the needed health protocols. They are recommended to place the items on their doorstep and as much as possible, the payment for the food delivery should be cashless.

The driver and the person who will be delivering the food should be wearing masks to prevent the possibility of spreading the virus just in case. People are also recommended to always wash their hands after each transaction. If you are going to have your food delivered directly from the restaurant, you can ask them about their safety protocols too.

As numerous countries begin to go into lockdown because of coronavirus, online food delivery is now requested on higher demand. Online food delivery is safe when you are getting the food from a reputable and trusted company.

As the food is being delivered at home, different measures should be taken so that the couriers and receivers are prevented from contacting coronavirus from each other.

Online food delivery is a potential way of transmitting coronavirus because as the couriers move from restaurants to houses, droplets of the virus can be transmitted through sneezing and coughing, especially when making deliveries to a family who is in quarantine.

Finally, I believe in reducing the mode of transmission; online food delivery should be left at the door to avoid any face to face contact.

Yes, I believe online food delivery is safe in 2020. Many people are concerned about delivery services with the ongoing pandemic. However, for some, it is the only way they are able to get groceries or to enjoy their favorite pastime food. Early on during the pandemic, online services such as Door Dash, Uber Eats, and Instacart acknowledged their customer's concerns and immediately begin to implement changes in the way they handled their deliveries.

Many are offering no contact delivery. With the exception of alcohol deliveries, they will leave the groceries and food at the front door. Along with that, the drivers are wearing a mask and given hand sanitizer to carry with them.

Ordering delivery is the most secure way to get food during the corona virus outbreak. Many food services have made it easier to avoid contact and eliminate the virus's threat by walking into potential exposure at the grocery store. Grocery and meal delivery services are improving their hygiene procedures by offering door to door drop off service so that customers do not have any social contact with the person. The food itself does not contaminate people since the food industry prides itself on being careful and sanitary, especially in the kitchen. Restaurants, grocery stores, and deli already have preparations for their workers, even when the pandemic was not a threat to society.

Online food delivery is safe if you are getting your food from reputable companies. However, the coronavirus outbreak has affected this system of food delivery. Both the couriers and the receivers are at higher risk of contracting the coronavirus, especially in countries where coronavirus cases are surging every single day.

This is not safe for couriers or deliverers as they will need to travel to different houses to get food delivered to those who have ordered it. The mode of transmission of this disease is through droplets, meaning a courier might have the virus already, and through coughing and sneezing, he might release the virus on the surface of any food package he is to deliver.

This means the receiver of such a package might contract the disease as well. Also, a courier is exposing himself to the virus by visiting those who are in self-isolation because they have tested positive for coronavirus.
