Should you be worried about coronavirus on items like packages, groceries, and takeout food containers? The Doctors and infectious disease expert Dr. Ravina Kullar help sort out this issue which is a concern for so many people.
Dr. Kullar's tips for the items we bring into our homes include:
Groceries: For exposed items (like produce) the infectious disease expert suggests to wash with warm water and food-safe soap, making sure to wash off all the soap and allow the items to dry completely
Takeout food containers: Be sure to place the takeout items in a specific spot, which you should clean after you transfer your food to your own plates
Packages: Dr. Kullar suggests throwing away boxes after you get your items and washing your hands after opening
She also notes anything you bring into the store (like your phone) and anything you touch after being in a grocery store (door handles, car steering wheel) should be cleaned after. She does not think gloves need to worn when handling packages, noting there is a shortage of this vital medical supply and proper handwashing should suffice.
