A: Although the virus can survive for short periods of time on some surfaces, health experts consider it unlikely that the virus spreads through mail or packaging products. While it might be possible to get COVID-19 if you touch packaging or other materials contaminated with the virus, then touch your mouth, nose, or eyes, that isn’t thought to be the main way coronaviruses spread. It is good practice to wash your hands after receiving deliveries and mail and routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.
