The easy answer is yes, it’s safe, but because COVID-19 is being encountered for the first time, scientists and researchers are learning new things about it on a daily basis.
There is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is spreading through mail or parcels, according to the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Most of it is spread from droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, which are inhaled by people nearby.
Health experts say the risks are very low that COVID-19 will remain on envelopes or packages and infect anyone who handles them.
It’s still a good idea to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, and avoid touching your face, after handling deliveries.
Investing in a disinfectant spray is also a good idea, so you can be safe and spray whatever packages come from outside, even boxed and canned grocery goods.
It may seem like you’ve been in lockdown since forever, but the virus is very young, and not everything being learned is set in stone. It is always better to be safe, rather than sorry.
