Is mail safe during COVID-19?
According to the United States Postal Service, the United States Surgeon General, the Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization, “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. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets.’ Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods.” https://about.usps.
