Instacart now offers deliveries that don’t require human contact amid coronavirus fears
The grocery delivery startup said Thursday that it has rolled out a new feature call “Leave at My Door Delivery,” which gives customers the option to have an order left by their door during a designated time frame instead of having an in-person hand-off.
The company said it had been testing the opt-in feature in recent months and decided to roll out the option to all customers now because of “increased demand” for it in recent days.
In a statement, a GrubHub spokesperson said, “this is obviously a complex and fast-moving situation. We are focused on prioritizing the health and safety of our drivers, diners, restaurant partners and employees during this challenging time. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, including assessing and analyzing the potential impact on our business.”
