— Written By and last updated by

CDC, FDA, and USDA are not aware of any reports at this time that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging.

Food businesses should be following employee health policies and health department recommendations to keep these individuals at home. To learn more about COVID-19 and takeout, view our videos:
