Dining out is a challenge during COVID-19. While many don’t give a second thought to sitting on a patio for a meal in the middle of a pandemic, others cannot take the risk. Social distancing is key for the vulnerable and those who come into contact with them, whether a family member, friend, or roommate.
With restaurants fully invested into delivery or takeout, some businesses are making sure that contactless pickup is precisely that. Upon arrival, interactions between restaurant staff and customers is very limited. These precautions are not just for diners, restaurant staff comes into regular contact with countless individuals everyday, and wants to minimize coronavirus exposure as well.
