Of course everyone knows it is always safest to make your own food at home, but if you need to get a meal delivered, here's how to safely order food online...
1. Wear gloves
Make sure you wear gloves when you're taking the order from the delivery guy and immediately take them off after you're done, before you touch your face of any surfaces.
2. Keep a distance
For his safety and yours, keep a good distance between you and the delivery guy so that there wouldn't be any risk of infection from both ends.
Prepare the money beforehand and try to have it be the exact amount so you can avoid any exchanges in cash. You could also pay online using credit card.
