As far the sanitation and handling are concerns, our team is fully aware on how to handle the packages before shipping it to you. Our team makes sure that they take necessary precautions to not contaminate the products with the corona virus. On the other hand, since packages go through a lot of hands before they reach your house, they are too responsible to disinfect the package when they receive them. Also, upon researching, there is a very low chance in getting the virus on packages since the as per study, corona virus can stay into cardboards within 24 hours and on plastic for up to three days.
However, here are some tips for handling packages and deliveries.
While surface-to-person transmission of COVID-19 via packages is technically feasible, it's unlikely — especially if you're following guidelines for protecting yourself from the virus.
Here are tips for keeping yourself safe while accepting packages and deliveries:
- Avoid close contact with the delivery person. Ask for contact-free delivery, recommending that the package be left in a safe space outside your home. At the very least, be sure to maintain six feet of distance between yourself and the delivery person.
- Wash your hands after handling a package. After discarding the packaging, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with either soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Disinfect surfaces. For instance, if you set the package down on your kitchen counter while opening it, disinfect the counter using either household cleaner or a diluted bleach solution you can make at home.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. The good news it that the virus can't infect you through your skin. But, you can get sick if it's on your hands and you touch your eyes, nose or mouth. This means you should avoid touching your face as much as possible.
If you're still really nervous about your packages, you can leave them untouched in an isolated space for several hours — possibly a whole day — or disinfect the package before opening it.
