April 18th, 2020 – How McDonald’s, Chipotle, and Other Fast Food Chains Are Responding to the COVID-19 Outbreak

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Out With Joe

this week edition of out with joe we’ll take a look at How McDonald’s, Chipotle, and Other Fast Food Chains Are Responding to the COVID-19 Outbreak.. from an article in Good Houskeeping.. the coronavirus outbreak has impacted many of the retailers across the United States, fast-food chains are doing everything they can to keep their customers as safe as possible. Many chains have had to shutter their dining rooms in response to stay-at-home orders in 45 states and counting, per The New York Times, in an attempt to prevent COVID-19 from further spreading among communities. But most are pivoting to pick-up and delivery operations — and some are offering new services altogether, including groceries for customers who are having trouble securing staples at their local supermarket.

The majority of big fast food chains are planning to stay open, many with temporary operational changes as states extend social distancing measures. Picking up take-out is certainly an option, even if the store doesn’t have a drive-thru window. Some chains may also have introduced new delivery options or lifted delivery fees altogether to allow people to safely stay home.

We’ve published a list of restaurants  offering free delivery for customers, including contactless delivery, which means you can simply have your meal dropped on your doorstep.  To be clear, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes that the coronavirus is spread from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person sneezes, coughs, or speaks rapidly in close proximity to someone else. To date, the CDC hasn’t reported any cases where patients contracted COVID-19 by eating food, and the risk associated with handling delivery materials that would be the bags and boxes the food is delivered in is much lower compared to actually getting face-to-face with delivery personnel or the employees in a fast-food chain. That said, it’s crucial to do what feels right for you.
