    ○ There is still a lot we do not know about the transmission pathway of COVID-19.

    ○ The survival span of the virus varies depending on surface materials, surrounding temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors. It has been reported that the virus may survive for days, but the risk of contracting the virus from products or packages that are shipped for days or weeks at room temperature is extremely low.

    ○ According to the United States CDC, “as of now, there is no evidence to support the theory that COVID-19 is transmitted by imported products and there have not been any COVID-19 cases reported concerning imported products.”

    ○ Updated findings that are published will be shared later on.
