How can I avoid getting contaminated through shopping?Last update: 29/04/2020
A high level of contamination through packaging appears to be unlikely: if the virus is present, its viral load (the active components), once dispersed, diminishes very quickly, making it much less powerful.
If in doubt, the best approach is always to wash your hands thoroughly before and after putting your shopping away.
You can also try and throw away as much of the packaging as possible when you return from shopping, then wash your hands thoroughly again before you put away your food.
