How to Safely Handle Packages During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Since all of Direct Depot's products are sold only online, we pulled together some facts about the Coronavirus and how to safely handle mail and package deliveries. Some people worry that packages and mail may be contaminated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and they could be bringing the virus into their homes. So, can online shopping lead to coronavirus spreading through mail and packages? Experts say it's not likely, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself. Here are our top 5 ways to safely handle packages and mail during the Coronavirus Pandemic:
(1) Practice Social Distancing with your mail carrier and package delivery drivers. Social distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. The CDC recommends staying at least six feet away from other people to lessen your chances of catching COVID-19.
(2) Leave your mail and packages outside for a period of time. The general consensus is that the coronavirus can live up to 24 hours on cardboard, so leaving your packages or mail outside for a 24 hour period should do the trick. If you move your packages and mail to a safe location for storage for the 24 hour package quarantine period, be sure and wash your hands after you complete the task.
(3) Remove the product from the shipping package and throw the packaging away immediately. I would recommend throwing the packaging away outside, prior to taking the product into your house.
(4) After you have removed the shipping box, wipe the product packaging down with a disinfectant wipe, hand sanitizer, or alcohal. The sanitizer should be at least 70 percent alcohal in order to kill the coronavirus.
(5) Don't touch your face while handling your mail and packages and after completing steps 3 and 4 above be sure and wash your hands. The CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
