‘The safety of our customers, restaurant partners, riders and our employees is without a doubt our top priority. Everything else is secondary. We already started taking precautionary measures within our delivery ecosystem in January to ensure safety comes first.

At the same time, ensuring business continuity for our restaurant partners business is important. By leveraging our technology, we’re encouraging our customers to order from nearby restaurant partners who may be seeing dine-in rates dropping due to uncertainty around COVID-19,’ he said.
