I would get some gloves and take out the perishables and put them in the refrigerator, then take out the other goods and leave them for a day or two.

I've heard two different things from experts. On asked what about mail, one expert said those things shouldn't be too infected.

Another, one of Oprah's creations, Dr. Oz says packages and items like that are an issue and should be dealt with something like the OP speaks of.

One expert was a virus expert, Dr. Oz is not a virus specialist.

So we hear different things from different experts

I was getting groceries for mother in law, and this dumb B was handling every single celery bag, trying to find the biggest one. I said smartly, "so do you have to handle every single one?" as I snatched mine.

I had on gloves, and clean my hands when I get into the car. I recommend having a paper towel for doors, the doors to the coolers. Stay away from the carts. If the disease is that omnipresent these techniques are not enough....we're in big trouble.

Like Plato said, "the highest good lies in the mean".

Fomite transmission risks through paper/cardboard diminish over time as the viruses start to die off. The longer they sit on the surface, the lower the risk of transmission..

For the guy several days ago that kept posting over and over you can't get it from food...

Can I Get Coronavirus From Food? Scientists Say Yes and to Step Away From the Deli Meats.



Research has confirmed the coronavirus can survive on hard surfaces, like plastic and metal, for days. But it turns out, food can also be a carrier of the contagious respiratory illness, especially items like deli meats, salads, and certain fruits. “Moist, semi-solid foods are a wonderful medium for microbes and can boost the longevity of the virus,” said Dr. Jack Caravanos, a clinical professor at New York University’s School of Global Public Health. “It’s as good of an environment for the virus as your mouth.”

We definitely are. We have a staging area in our garage. I have no idea if it is useful but, why risk it?

Some forms of Lysol are not effective against it. Check the back. It needs to say it's effective against SARS.



Thanks for the heads up.....of course my lysol doesn't say any such thing....details are a bitch....these cans of lysol are probably a couple of years old...sigh !

If you are going to be like that just stay inside. Getting angry at a woman touching celery bags and snatching one. Did you run women off the road in your high truck on the way home in your frustration, little fella?

If you are acting like this already what are you going to do when things really get bad... you should of asked the poor woman if she needed any help.

I see everything out there... everything... I've been observing the world for a long time.. playing the fool...God is watching too.

You weren't there, so stfu. I'm not above handing out a verbal lesson once in a while, be it in a store or online.

My wellness and my family depend on dirty B learning her lesson. She deserved it, just the same as a male or a tranny would.

So keep your sexist opinions to yourself. No doubt you would be too timid to speak up in public, especially to my face, but you would complain online from behind your keyboard....what a whiner.

Don't forget the two dozen packers, farm workers, cashier, stock boy, truckers,
that touched 'your' celery before you purchased it.
Mental rage does not solve anything, nor would a grocery store brawl.
At times as these, please people stay composed.

If a virus can live on a countertop surface, it most assuredly can live on packaging at the store. Think about it, what do you think surface cleaners (Lysol) are for???

I’m also paranoid about packaging and containers from grocery stores. For example, every time I have a glass of milk I painstakingly wash my hands after returning the carton to the fridge and before I touch the filled glass. I also wonder if the virus could be thriving in my fridge since it seems resistant to cold temps. Honestly, I have my doubts that it’s possible to remain virus-free if you have any physical contact with things touched by others or enter a building occupied by others. This is a nightmare like out of some sci-fi or horror film.

The experts, for what it's worth, say that the virus doesn't usually spread the way folks are thinking about it here....through food packages, mail containers, envelopes, and surfaces. They do say the virus can remain on those surfaces for varying periods of time. But just wash your hands when you come from shopping. Now that's what they say, whether that is fully true is another thing.

And also stop touching your face, even at home watching tv.

Maybe this is just all about God wanting to stop us from picking our noses?

infected individuals are intentionally trying to spread the virus so yes, clean your food.

Order online, on time (before running out of food), then don't touch the groceries for 72 hours (worst case scenario). Then you're good to go I figured based on what I'm hearing about how long the virus stays on surfaces (I guess you could do more than 72 to be on the safe side).

When physically receiving and storing the groceries, you can either wear gloves or use a paper towel or something else to avoid physical contact with the groceries. Perhaps even washing your hands afterwards for good measure.

You can also shop for groceries 72 hours before you need them and basically do the same thing, but then you have to go to the grocery store or supermarket requiring a bit more protective measures to minimize your chances of infection.

Hmm, just saw a report that the virus can remain for 17 days rather than the earlier estimated 3 days. That changes my previous comment considerably.

One thing I read recently that we all need to do: take off your shoes when entering your home!!! If you go out and step where anyone has sneezed and as a result droplets/ virus has settled on the floor, it can get on the soles of your shoes, which you can track into to your house. Pets feet should also be cleaned for the same reason before entry.

I get why people are cautious but I think most of it is bs. If you could get it through contact with groceries, shoes or clothes than we would see hundreds of millions infected rather than 300,000.
I can see many of you clean your groceries, but what about the clothes you wore when you went shopping?
