#3 Is it safe to get packages?
The vast majority of people have been worried as to whether or not it’s safe to receive and touch their packages. And while the study we already mentioned notes that the virus can remain on paper and cardboard for up to 24 hours, Fauci says again not to worry about this kind of contraction.
“I don’t think we need to get completely obsessed about packages that come in, because those types of surfaces… the virus might live there for a very short time,” Fauci told Noah. “But people say, ‘Should I get a package from a grocery store that says “Made in China”?’ I wouldn’t worry about that. That’s not the issue.”
