I'm no germaphobe in fact have been in situiations where gloves were not available durring an event that would make most sick .
My concerns is the unknown!
There has been no proof of what this virus is capable of doing! Other than killing humans.
17 days after an out break on a ship the virus was still on board,on hard surfaces.
This entire situiation is subject to change by the minuite.
I personally do not need something that bad that may or may not effect my or my family health.
If just 5 out of 10 Americans truly knew first hand.... what Spain and Italy are experencing at present maybe the voices would be louder....!
Buckel up.....you're in for a ride of a life time.
Hand washing afterwards.
We are creatures of habit.....I am the biggest offender of not praticing at home what I do at work. Think about it....and that's the key....we become very comfortable in our every day life.....at home, what we eat where we eat....
Each day the numbers increase both infections and deaths...everywhere percentages are rising...... make good choices....
Inquiring minds only need wait a week...... then re ask the same question....look at NYC, and every other hot spot.....what do they have in common?
The evidence actually suggests they don’t as one piece of mail would infect many others and so on and everyone would have it by now. Absurd to tell people to ignore all mail until this passes
And as someone who usually doesn’t particularly enjoy the general population.... the social distancing rules should be made permanent lol
Make good choices......
The world was a different place last year......it was in a different place last summer.....but now we are here..... make good choices
The only problem with your statement is, it's not a proven fact. It makes sense but making sense doesn't make it a fact.
To some extent for sure. However though with all the mail in the world and how much it touches each other we do have to come to 1 of two conclusions, it only extremely rarely does or everyone has it type thing.
Also that the cruise ship had it 17 days later and not everyone had it in the confined space etc. it’s very rare for anything days later to do that. Wash hands after it for sure to be safe but my issue was with the you can’t even get mail or packages when billions go out a day
I've been picking up my mail in boxes for several days now, bringing it home, and letting it sit in the box until opened. I safely discard the packaging set the coins aside for a few days, and wash my hands.
After the coins have "recovered" from any potential exposure, I examine, receive them into my books, photograph and list them for sale.
That's about the best way I can think of to handle the situation.
If they weren't metal, I'd microwave them, but that wouldn't end well.
The microwave was a much needed laugh.
I generally wash my hands after (but I’m doing that anyways before touching my face) and the shipping time is a big delay for most things as well. I do try and open everything at once to limit the hand washing to some extent and save my skin a bit. One could even use gloves if they wanted to be extra careful
True, but if that is the stance then you have to do it for everything. Food, letters, your car, clothes etc. just doing it for packages if that was the case it was that contagious won’t help
crater, and some of the big businesses that sell through eBay are probably going to have to curtail operations or shut down completely.
yup, I agree. It’s a good time to simply clean the things we touch every day. What’s the harm?
