Food & Covid 19

CDC has a new webpage, Food and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Coronaviruses, like the one that causes COVID-19, are thought to spread mostly person to person through respiratory droplets when someone coughs, sneezes, or talks. Though there is currently no evidence to suggest that handling or eating food is associated with COVID-19, the webpage provides helpful information on commonly asked questions about handling food packages; tips for safely shopping for groceries and buying meat in bulk; and tips on maintaining good nutrition even if your eating or grocery-shopping habits have changed.
