If you order take-out or delivery, here's the best ways to keep germs at bay

Doordash and Grubhub have implemented contact less delivery options.

Dr. Simone Wildes, an infectious disease specialist, told ABC News that one of the safest precautions is "not to make contact with the delivery person" during the hand off.

Once the food is inside the kitchen, Wilde suggested another step to help mitigate any risk of potential germs being spread.

"Take it out of the containers, toss those containers and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water," she advised.

The coronavirus can live on cardboard surfaces for 24 hours and on plastic surfaces for up to 72 hours, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Package disposal and hand washing are two important steps in your new dinner delivery process.

Doordash CEO and co-founder Tony Xu told ABC News that his company is rolling out resources to give delivery workers an extra layer of protection.

"For drivers we are in the middle of distributing over a million health kits, which include gloves and sanitizers," he said. "For consumers this week we are defaulting all deliveries to no contact."

Grubhub founder and CEO Matt Maloney said the company has also implemented new strategies to help in the wake of coronavirus.

"We're working really hard with local jurisdictions to make sure that delivery and pickup is still available," he said.

" Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
