Covid-19 Package Handling Guide
The CDC, the World Health Organization, as well as the Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.
Specifically, according to the World Health Organization, "the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved,
travelled, and been exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low." And according to the CDC, "in general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from
products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures."
Initial studies have shown that the virus can live on cardboard for up to 24 hours and on plastic for up to 3 days.
If you're concerned about the safety of any packages delivered to you, you can take these extra precautions:
If you do not need your packages right away, you can leave them outside your home for the specified amount of time as reported by the CDC.
If you need your items sooner than that:
Thoroughly wipe down any packages or deliveries - whether they are in cardboard or plastic - with an approved disinfectant
Remove your product from inside the box or bag and dispose of any shipping packaging immediately
Wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
Most importantly, avoid touching your face and wash your hands after handling any packages or deliveriesand dispose of any shipping packaging immediately
