Some food delivery companies are adding a “leave at the door” option to avoid contact with a delivery person amid coronavirus worries.

  • Instacart added a “Leave at My Door Delivery” option for all customers.


  • Postmates also added a non-contact drop-off option.


  • Grubhub hasn’t done it yet.


  • Uber Eats doesn’t have an official option but it has a┬ádelivery notes section where users can let delivery people know to leave food at the door or at a building reception area.
