This Is How To Order A Takeaway Safely During Lockdown
With a number of food outlets and restaurants open for collection or delivery only, many Brits are still able to get their takeaway fix during lockdown.
But with so many social distancing guidelines in place, you might well be wondering how we can support restaurants and enjoy a delicious takeaway while also remaining safe.
Well, according to Dr Hilary Jones - who spoke on the topic during Good Morning Britain today - there are five steps you can take to make sure you're staying as safe as possible while still enjoying your takeaway of choice.
He said: "Provided you can pick up a takeaway without coming into close contact with somebody else, provided you can still socially distance, picking up food is perfectly OK. People have to eat, restaurants need to be kept going."
Dr Hilary recommends sticking to the following five steps:
1. As long as there are no queues, order your food and take it home.
2. Remove all packaging.

3. Throw all packaging away into the bin.
4. Wash your hands (for at least 20 seconds, remember!)
5. Before serving, heat up your food again, to over 60 degrees.
Over the last fortnight, a number of fast food chains have reopened their doors for delivery and in some cases, collection.
Earlier this week, McDonald's revealed 15 of its restaurants would reopen for delivery via Just Eat and Uber Eats from Monday 13th May, operating under a new limited menu (which don't worry, includes all the favourites).
Meanwhile, Burger King has set out plans to re-open one restaurant in every city by 31st May. The chain has already started to gradually reopen a small number of its branches, offering a limited menu which is only available via delivery.
TGI Fridays has also been added to the list of food outlets reopening, with the American chain offering both delivery and click and collect options across 24 restaurants. You can find the full list of them here.
