Self isolation due to Coronavirus might be a necessary measure, but it can come with a whole load of issues - particularly if you live alone and can't pop to the shops. But food delivery website Just Eat is helping those who can't get out by offering 'contactless delivery'; meaning you can have food delivered to your door without having to see the person dropping it off.

The most up-to-date recommendations focus on social distancing to help prevent the spread of illness. So, in order to help our customers follow this guidance, you can now request contactless deliveries for your card payment orders by using the notes box on our app or website as follows:

  1. Login to the Just East website or app as normal.
  2. Choose your restaurant and menu items as normal.
  3. During the checkout process your will find our Leave a note for the restaurant box.
  4. Write your request for contactless delivery in the box e.g. "Please leave my food on the doorstep and ring the bell to let me know it's delivered."

Pretty easy, right? And it's the perfect solution if you want to support local businesses who may be struggling during this time, too.

This week, the World Health Organisation officially labelled coronavirus a pandemic. Large public events including concerts and sports matches will be banned as the UK tries to tackle the spread of the disease, putting pressure on the likes of Glastonbury and Notting Hill Carnival.

So for now, we'll be hibernating at home with a bowl of ramen left on our doorstep.
