The World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have stated that the likelihood of COVID-19 contaminating cardboard or other shipping containers is low.  

Recent research has shown that COVID-19 can live for up to 24 hours on cardboard. Many shipments take longer than that, and most drivers and package handlers are wearing gloves as a precaution; however, it’s always a good idea to frequently wash your hands, especially after handling any package or its contents. Please follow CDC guidelines re: hand washing.
