|For example, the “Getting What I Need” button covers advice on grocery shopping, ordering from restaurants, home deliveries, prescriptions and seeing the doctor for non-urgent needs. Answers are short and to the point. No need to wade through lots of information to find what you’re looking for.Hit the grocery shopping button and it will let you know that while there is no evidence that Covid-19 can be transmitted by food, if someone else has touched the item before you, that could be an issue. So wherever you buy your groceries, be sure to wash food containers and produce.|
The ordering from restaurants button says that ordering cooked meals from local restaurants is relatively safe and provides practical advice like checking to see if the restaurant is open and whether the delivery service has waived fees.The Navigator will be regularly updated to keep up with new questions presented by Covid-19 in the weeks ahead.
