What health precautions can I take when I receive parcels?Last update: 29/07/2020
For deliveries, letter boxes should be used wherever possible.
In the case of deliveries which will not fit in letter boxes, the delivery person should alert you to their arrival (by knocking or ringing the bell). They will place the parcel on the doorstep and immediately step back at least 1 metre from the door, before the customer opens the door.
They may also leave the parcel on the doorstep and check from a distance that the parcel has been received.
The aim is to avoid close contact and, in particular, to ensure that parcels are not passed from hand to hand.
Wash your hands thoroughly after collecting and opening parcels.
