We have been asked this question a million times and there are a lot of theories out there so we want to set the record straight. According to the World Health Organization, they are still researching and gaining information on this particular new strand of Covid-19. However, studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).
Ways You Can Help Prevent The Spread Of Covid-19
CLEAN EVERYTHING! Regardless if you think it is infected, clean it with a simple disinfectant to kill the virus to protect yourself and others. If you get a package delivered, wipe it down inside and out. Do this in your garage so you are not bringing the virus into your home. If you get takeout or delivery, remove the food, wipe down the package preferably before it enters your home. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash then with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.
