Government guidance for food businesses on coronavirus
Government guidance tells us that it is very unlikely that you can catch coronavirus from food. COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It is not known to be transmitted by exposure to food or food packaging.
The FSA has produced guidance for takeaways and food delivery businesses in response to COVID-19. The guidance covers taking an order, hygiene and allergen guidance for food delivery and delivering food orders.
Food Standards Scotland has created a Q&A in relation to COVID-19 and food. This includes steps to take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in food businesses, cleaning of premises and equipment, and employee safety relating to social distancing and PPE.
