COVID-19 can survive on some surfaces. This means there is a small risk with anything brought into your home, including your shoes, your groceries and your online shopping. However, Australia Post CEO, Christine Holgate, advises that customers should remain comfortable in receiving their parcels and mail.
'We're one postal organisation, there are about 165 in the world, and I'm pleased to report there's no evidence that the virus survives on letters or parcels,' Ms Holgate said.
