COVID & FOOD - 10 facts


There have been lots of questions about whether food is safe during COVID and the government has issued some guidelines on the topic. If you're still a little unsure what these are, I have created a short easy to read summary for you:




· You won’t catch COVID from food or food packaging

· Keep 2 metres apart while shopping – that’s the length of 2 trolleys

· Wash hands after handling outer food packaging but no need to sanitise outer packing

· Don’t touch unwrapped products (i.e fresh bread) in supermarkets unless you are going to buy it

· Wash thoroughly any loose fruit and vegetables that you buy

· Wash hands before handling food and before eating

· Cook foods thoroughly to kill any viruses

· Takeaways and food deliveries should have same social distancing rules

· Food that has been imported into this country are all COVID safe

· Clean all food surface areas in your kitchen every day with hot soapy water or disinfectant



Keep safe everyone and enjoy all your delicious meals.
