Self-isolating doesn't mean you have to miss out on your burrito bowl fix. The beloved fast-casual Mexican chain is offering free delivery on all orders from March 15 through March 31 to curb anxieties regarding COVID-19. Per a press release, all orders will also feature a tamper evident packaging seal to reassure customers that nothing has been tampered with. And those ordering online or through the app will be allowed to leave special delivery instructions, such as leaving the package on the door to limit contact.
