3 Things You Should Keep in Mind When Visiting a Restaurant Right Now

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when visiting a restaurant. You should get takeout, follow health rules, and don’t go anywhere with symptoms. This will help to limit the spread of COVID.

Get Takeout

When visiting a restaurant right now, it’s safest to get takeout. When ordering takeout, try to pay online or over the phone to limit contact with others. Instead of using a food delivery service, such as DoorDash, order directly from the restaurant, if possible. This will limit the number of people touching your food. Ordering takeout is considered safe during this time, as any real risk of contamination would come from the worker handling the food rather than the food itself. Ordering takeout can provide you and your family with some sense of normalcy while giving you a chance to support your favorite restaurant during this challenging and uncertain time.

Follow Health Rules

If you enter a restaurant, make sure you follow the social distancing signs. Masks are currently recommended for employees and customers as much as possible when not eating or drinking and when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. As you enter the restaurant, look around and take note of any signs that are up. Employees will most likely tell you any rules that are in place in the restaurant. Following the health rules will help you to stay safe and keep the people around you safe too.

Don’t Show up with Symptoms

While that low-grade fever or minor sore throat might not get in your way of enjoying a delicious meal, that doesn’t mean it won’t affect others. We all need to do our part by staying away from others when we have even mild symptoms that might be COVID. The virus affects everyone differently and what doesn’t affect you very much, might affect someone else a lot more. It’s a good idea to know what your symptoms are and if you are presenting any symptoms, then you should make sure to stay home and protect the people around you.

When you visit a restaurant during the pandemic, you should be doing a few things. You should get takeout, follow health rules, and don’t go anywhere with symptoms. These tips will help you to stay safe and keep those you come in contact with safe too.
