USPS Says Mail Is Likely Safe From The Coronavirus

The U.S. Postal Service is telling Ohioans that their mail is likely safe from spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus.

USPS officials posted a statement on their website saying the CDC and the U.S. Surgeon General have indicated there is no evidence to show that the mail or imported goods are spreading the virus.

The World Health Organization also released a report stating the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial products is low because of the poor survivability of the virus on those surfaces.

Currently, the most common way of getting the illness is from person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets.
