The West Virginia Bureau for Public Health has provided the guidance below on the safety of takeout and delivery.

The CDC, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) are not aware of any reports at this time that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging. Current evidence shows the biggest identifiable risk of transmission of COVID-19 is being around individuals who are symptomatic (and to a lesser extent, infected but not showing symptoms). Food businesses should be following employee health policies and health department recommendations to keep any ill individuals home.
