How can I make sure my deliveries and packages are safe?
While according to experts your risk of contracting COVID-19 from ecommerce packages is low, here are a few actions you can take if you’re still concerned:
- Wipe down the exterior of the package with a disinfectant, open, then wash your hands.
- You can leave the cardboard package outside at your door for ideally 3 hours. This negates the possibility of accidental airborne transmission from the delivery person —or bring it inside right away and leave it right inside your door, (then wash your hands).
- Open it outdoors. Take the content out, discard the packaging then wash your hands again.
