That same doctor would most likely tell you not to touch your delivered newspaper or the plastic bag it came in.

Wonder why Wawa is still being allowed to serve coffee--their carafe style dispensers, are not designed for sanitation--meaning -multiple people can use them before they are cleaned
I was at Wawa on 441 today and they have one employee assigned to filling your coffee order. They put in the cream, sugar and pour your coffee. Custiomers cannot touch the urns

I know it isn't easy but if I were you I would fight the feeling.

Good question Chatbrat, you may have saved someone. Bravo.

Totally agree, I can’t justify isolating and giving up our lifestyle to be safe and then risk all the precautions we have taken to get food prepared and packaged by total strangers, who may have not taken the same precautions. It just does not make any sense! And I am not going to spray my food with a disinfectant before I dine. For the foreseeable future we will be preparing all of our meals ourselves.

We do not eat out more than 5 times a month and will be going to do take out at as many places as we can to support the hard working people that provide us with the lifestyle we have here. Support them and make them see the gratitude we have. Tip as if you were sitting in the seat. Take it and put it in the microwave or oven if you are worried about the virus. There are people that need our support. Help them!

Same for PANERA. All the coffee and milk dispensers are used by everyone. REALLY DUMB. Oh, but they hide the sugar packets because everyone reaches in to take them! We used a napkin to dispense the coffee but no one else was.

That is very noble of you but is it worth the risk to your health? Better to just send them money to distribute to the help and cook at home. Look at the risk to benifit.
