Posted by: Providence Care Center - Friday, May 29, 2020

You may be caring for an aging parent or have more people in your household than usual during the pandemic. As the U.S. begins recovery efforts and more businesses re-open, you may choose to get take-out food for a break from many home-cooked meals in recent weeks.

To help make sure you prevent the spread of the virus, follow these tips from the CDC:

  • Whenever possible, order and pay for food orders in advance, either online or over the phone.
  • Practice social distancing, staying at least 6 feet away from others while waiting in line for order pickup.
  • Keep hand sanitizer with at least a 60% alcohol content inside your vehicle to use frequently during trips.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home
  • Once home, remove food from to-go containers.
  • Thoroughly clean common surfaces, including your kitchen countertops and faucet handles.
