PSA: Get take out...

Dining out raises the risk of contracting Covid-19 more than other activities, such as shopping or going to a salon, according to a report published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC report included 314 people who had Covid-19 symptoms and were subsequently tested for the virus; about half tested positive...

Those who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, "were approximately twice as likely to have reported dining at a restaurant than were those with negative SARS-CoV-2 test results," the study authors wrote. And those who were diagnosed without any known exposure to the virus were more likely to report having visited a bar or coffee shop in the previous two weeks...

One limitation of the report is that the researchers did not ask participants whether they ate or drank indoors or outdoors.

Rather huge variable to make the leap from dining outdoors to standing next to someone at a bar just drinking and chatting, which this does not differentiate.

Anyone who is serious about protecting themselves against COVID isn't going to bars or restaurants. Anyone who is going out to restaurants is probably not always wearing a mask, washing their hands, or taking proper precautions.

My wife and I ate outside at an establishment that had converted 1/3 of their parking lot for open tables. Took us an hour to find one in an unfamiliar city on a road trip.

Otherwise, we do not like going inside for takeout for all the reasons stated here about the likely nature of the patrons that ARE inside.

I feel terrible for those that have to work inside restaurants. They are getting exposed ALL the time.

We've gone out a few times and it's been fine. Tried mostly sitting outside, but couldn't always. The restaurants have every other table blocked off, sometimes more, and they have plexiglass between booths.

I'd rather eat at home.
