Ensuring the safety of takeaway delivery

Updated: 2022-05-26

To improve epidemic prevention and control, the Bureau of Commerce and Finance of the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area (BDA) has continued to carry out inspections on the "no dine-in" policy. Through daily inspections and strict defenses, all catering companies are guaranteed to suspend dining-in.

To ensure the safe and orderly delivery of food, the BDA has taken several measures.

The first is to establish a hierarchical management mechanism for food delivery personnel. For takeaway delivery personnel serving in medium and high-risk areas, such as closed control areas, control areas, prevention areas, and temporary control areas, a "white list" management mechanism will be adopted, and a nucleic acid test and an antigen test will be implemented once a day;

The second is to establish a filing mechanism for food delivery personnel. Enterprises are not allowed to dispatch orders for delivery personnel who are not included in the filing management and do not meet the requirements for health codes, nucleic acid testing, and antigen testing.

The third is to require enterprises to adopt the centralized management of food delivery personnel. In principle, the scope of activities of takeaway delivery personnel can not exceed the their living, work place and delivery area, and their activities other than delivery work should be minimized.

The fourth is to require takeaway delivery personnel to complete the whole process of COVID-19 vaccinations.

The fifth is to promote contactless distribution.

Sixth, takeaway delivery personnel are required to wear N95 (or KN95) masks and disposable gloves during delivery.
