Read on to see the brighter side of things.
No evidence of food being a source of transmission
So, until now, there has been no evidence that food is a source of transmission of the coronavirus. People surely need to eat and as a restaurant owner or owner of a take-away business, this means your business is on - people do want food and they want nutritious food. In times of health challenges nourishment and hygiene go hand in hand. The World Health Organisation (WHO), has advised following good hygiene practices during food handling and preparation, such as washing hands, cooking meat thoroughly and avoiding potential cross-contamination between cooked and uncooked foods. More information can be found on the WHO website.
Some of the most helpful ideas for restaurant owners in midst of coronavirus
- You could start by offering a la carte menu as take-away menu
- Offering cutlery packs with take-away packs can help prevent contamination
- Usage of disposable cups at cafe or any place of work, and not reusable cups is a wise idea to implement
- Usage of sealed containers or secured containers for hygienic purpose
- You could open up for online ordering and delivery services
