Good food news in the Corona Virus stay at home Era

Posted on April 4, 2020 by


There is good food news out there. Supermarkets are restocking. There may be limits on certain items and you know what I am talking about, but you can pretty much get what you want to buy here in New England. Since I couldn’t get food delivery and needed certain fresh items I gingerly ventured out on a rainy Friday and hope I couldn’t catch anything. What I found surprising and not shocking was signs in my local market for social distancing, signs that they were temporarily out of THOSE items and weary checkers that asked me how I was. Seriously? How do you think I am? I am scared, want to get out the heck out of there and hope I won’t get sick.

The two people checking and bagging my order, engaged in idle chit chat mentioned a colleague that tested positive for COVID 19 in one of their stores. I didn’t need to hear that.

I stocked up and hoped there is not a power outage.

In this article, Is takeout food safe from coronavirus? Food safety expert Francisco Diez about those concerns. He is the director of the Center for Food Safety at the University of Georgia. “Yes, it’s safe for people to eat. The food is not a vehicle for the transmission of the coronavirus.” That’s good news for those people tired of cooking for themselves or their family. Curbside pick-up is also a great option.

Whatever you decide to do, be safe, wear a mask when going outside, observe social distancing, we will get through this.
