Excerpt from FDA:

  • Observe established food safety practices for time/temp control, preventing cross contamination, cleaning hands, no sick workers, and storage of food, etc.

  • …wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing their nose, coughing or sneezing, or after touching high touch surfaces, e.g., doorknobs, and doorbells.

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.  See, CDC’s How to Protect Yourself & Others.

  • Increase the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces such as counter tops and touch pads and within the vehicle, by wiping down surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

    • Make sure to read the label and follow manufacturer’s instructions on use.

  • Practice social distancing when delivering food, e.g., offering “no touch” deliveries and sending text alerts or calling when deliveries have arrived.

  • Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold by storing in appropriate transport vessels.

    • Keep cold foods cold by keeping enough coolant materials, e.g., gel packs.

    • Keep hot foods hot by ensuring insulated cases are properly functioning.

  • Keep foods separated to avoid cross contamination, e.g., keeping raw foods separated from cooked and ready-to-eat foods.

  • Ensure that any wrapping and packaging used for food transport is done so that contamination of the food is prevented.

  • Routinely clean and sanitize coolers and insulated bags used to deliver foods.
