Until there's a vaccine it will never be safe to go out to eat.

The employees working there could be sick.

The patrons there could be sick.

The food delivery guys could be sick.

Even take out is not safe because of reasons listed, not to mention the driver.

It's never going back to like before until there's a cure.

Stay home if you don't want to take the risks.

Turn the TV off and go outside. The news always tells you the worst. Most people don't even know they have COVID-19 because it isn't affecting them.

Stay 6 feet away from others, if possible, avoid touching your face, and wash/sanitize your hands when you leave somewhere. LIVE YOUR LIFE.

No it will never be safe to eat out again until there's a vaccine! Let's all just hide under our beds until the government gives us the ok!

While you ponder if it's safe to go buy a burger, I'll continue to take my toddler wherever I go, without masks on. I carry him and don't let him touch anything adults touch (door handles, etc). I put sanitizer on his and my hands when we get back to the car. We haven't gotten COVID-19. I refuse to spend money at places that have mandated masks because I have self-control and don't touch my face. If I have to cough or sneeze (very rare), I use the crook of my elbow.

I spent a decade arresting people with HIV, Tuberculosis, and sharps in their pockets. COVID-19 doesn't scare me.

And I'm going to remind you that 100,000 Americans have died from COVID in only a span of months with social distancing. And there's going to be a second wave even deadlier.

With an attitude like yours no wonder this virus will continue to exist and innocent people will be murdered because of such bravado.

Just wanted to beat some of the posters here who were going to remind you that.

Keep in mind that many restaurants are not great places to eat even BEFORE this virus. I am talking about "dirty dining" issues, like having roaches and rodents, dirty dishes, pots, etc. and foods that are spoiled or set out too long Most people never even give that a thought. I would say CHOOSE WISELY.

We have gone out a few times, but only places with outdoor dining, we live in Florida so many places provide that, especially now.

We have gone out to eat several times since out restaurants opened for in dining. Happy to get out, happy to support our local businesses. I'm too old to sit home and cower in acquiescence to the ongoing fear mongering. I believe common sense applies here.

I have been on this earth for almost 82 yrs and in all the years I've eaten out I can honestly say I've not had a negative experience. I don't and won't live in fear and don't own a mask or sanitizer and don't go around in a lot of negative thinking and spewing. I'm ready for a yummy sushi.

When I saw the thread title, I was going to ask, 'it was safe to go out to eat?'

Adding to your list, the food is just terrible, I usually come away sick or disgusted, or both.

As granma used to say, "You are what you eat" and "there's no place like home".

I went to a higher end chain steakhouse a couple weeks back. Literally 12 people in the whole restaurant (customers) and our table was 4 of them. Every worker had masks/gloves on. Food was great.

I do think this slowdown will surely close more than a few restaurants permanently. I think that industry is going to flush out 1/3 of its workers due to closures/reduced patronage.
