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:

  1. Wipe down the exterior of the package with a disinfectant, open, then wash your hands. 
  2. 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).
  3. Open it outdoors. Take the content out, discard the packaging then wash your hands again.
