“FCPS reminds the community that although we are happy to provide meals to go, there is risk in traveling to pick them up,” says Daryl Boffman, executive director of public affairs. “We recommend following social distance and mask guidelines and handling all materials with care including washing food containers and bags with soap and water to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus.”
