I don't see why take out food should be a problem so long as the staff
are covid free and taking precautions. The main problem with
restaurants is the close quarters and close contact with large numbers
of people.

On a related note I was in a grocery store yesterday to get some fresh
fruit and vegetables. I noted that the woman who was stocking the
cucumbers was wearing gloves. Then I happened to notice her cought
into her gloved hand and continue handling the produce.
