I’ve been wondering if I should get takeout or not so I really appreciate this guide that Serious Eats put together:
Are we sure food isn’t a vector of COVID-19 transmission?They have many disclaimers because there’s a lot we don’t know, but they’re showing their reasoning and sources here.
No, we don't know for sure. However, there is strong evidence to suggest that food is not a vector. The epidemiology of food-borne pathogens is well studied, with government data going back to 1938. The spread pattern of COVID-19 does not fit models of foodborne outbreaks, which are defined as two or more people getting sick from the same contaminated food or drink.
