Is it safe to eat Chinese food?

Last Updated: 03/24/2020

Yes, Chinese food is safe to eat. Residents should help fight stigma and misinformation.

People of Asian descent, including Chinese Americans, are not more likely to get coronavirus than anyone else. Viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds. Let people know that being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19.
