It is still unclear why it is safe to use takeout and prepared food delivery. Imagine someone without symptoms but infected preparing your food? How is it different from touching your mouth? The packaging will likely be contaminated too. On average it takes 5.5 days for symptoms to materialize. All this time the incumbent is contagious. Also, at least 10x cases are not detected and many of them might be cooking your takeout. And after the symptoms subside, that same person still contagious for another 6-12 days.
