There is a contactless delivery option for avoiding interaction with the rider when advanced payment is made digitally
To help people get food, groceries, and other daily essential items during the lockdown, online food and grocery delivery platform foodpanda will continue to serve the consumers abiding by the government’s directives and health safety protocols.
This means all of foodpanda’s services, including online food delivery, pandamart grocery service, and shops will be serving customers while the nation will remain under lockdown.
Foodpanda has also taken safety measures to keep its community safe, reads a press release.
In addition to ensuring that riders sanitize their hands frequently and wear masks, there is a contactless delivery option for customers to avoid interaction with the rider when advanced payment is made digitally.
Alongside food delivery, foodpanda will continue to deliver groceries, medicine and other essentials which can be ordered online through its “shops” section or pandamart.
Amid the rising cases of Covid-19 over the past few weeks, the government announced new measures to curb the spread of the virus on Saturday.
Among the several government directives which are expected to reduce the transmission rate of the virus, a weeklong countrywide lockdown is starting from Monday morning.
The lockdown protocols have allowed restaurants to keep their kitchens open and continue takeaway and home-delivery services so that businesses can survive and consumers can get food delivered while they remain safe at home.
