"A consumer can now choose for this option through our ‘delivery instructions’ feature." He added that an "app update over the weekend will make this explicitly clear to everyone."

Through this option, the delivery executive will keep the delivery on a clean surface outside the door, and the consumer receives a photo of the delivered food. The consumer can then pick up the package at their convenience.

Well, that's all well and good. But how can one guarantee the food itself is cooked in hygienic conditions? Probably more for the optics and publicity.
And thats a trust factor one should have with the restuarant they order.

The fact that the virus contaminates surfaces is itself an enough reason not to order. Regardless of how the food is cooked, the packaging and covers are touched my multiple people before it gets to you.

(Since the virus rests on surfaces is why they are advocating cleaning of lift buttons, door handles, etc)
