All food businesses in East Suffolk, including takeaways, cafés, restaurants and public houses, are to receive information on providing a safe takeaway food service during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Last week the government issued the following guidance for businesses providing a takeaway food service. For the safety of the public and employees, this guidance must be implemented.

Businesses offering a food pick-up service should adhere to the following:

For these services: · no orders should be taken in person on the premises – this should be communicated to customers by appropriate means such as signage.

· businesses should therefore only take orders online or by telephone

· customers could have staggered collection times - customers should be discouraged from entering the premises until their order is ready

· customers arriving without having already placed an order should be encouraged to leave the premises to place their order by telephone or online, and to return at a designated time for collection

· customers whose orders are ready should enter one at a time to collect orders and make payments

· businesses should discourage crowding outside the premises. Where possible, use queue management systems to maintain the two metres separation.
