Not here! Just carefully move them (no direct contact) over to the garage and let them sit for a few days since the bug is not supposed to live more than a day on cardboard. I let them sit 3 days for the sake of caution. This way, we get to save the disinfecting stuff for other more pressing matters.
Yep, that sounds right. It is rare we get something delivered on a plastic bag / container, so all good there. There is typically no need to worry about the contents inside being they took time to arrive while in transit. We do consider the actual time they shipped vs the arrival time to make adjustments if needed. All in all, since we do not struggle with patience, we just let those things sit out as needed. Of course, each person will have their own threshold of caution / where to draw the line.
Yes, always wash your hands regardless as a precaution! LOL at the toilet paper! Now, as far as gloves, certainly a good point and idea. We do have them but just do not use them for this sort of thing. We are confident that our current measures are appropriate. For those rare cases that we need something immediately upon arrival, said item(s) would be sanitized and extra precautions taken.
Gloves work by being sacrificial. Example: you have complete control over your car so there's really no need to disinfect it except occasionally. But you have no control over the ATM. So when you drive to the ATM you can either disinfect your hands before getting back in your car, or you can wear gloves to use the ATM then immediately discard them in a trashcan.
Disinfecting gloves, well, you'd be better off just using bare hands at the ATM and disinfecting your hands.
tl/dr the virus only enters thru mouth, nose, eyes. Not skin. Wow.
Since no one but me and my wife have been in our house for months, I don't wash my hands or clean anything more than I did before the lockdown, save for a few delivered packages. For ATMs and gas pump touch pads, I use the eraser end of a pencil which I immediately disinfect along with my hands when the task is done. If one can avoid people and places where they have been, little cleaning is necessary.
Tip: at ATM. Use Lysol wipes with gloves on. The ATM works with the Lysol wipes. I do not know why. So you just sacrificing your one wipe and not your gloves. Ancillary benefit the ATM is disinfected for the next user.
If you take gloves off in car use purell.
Now the big question is can the virus live on money? Do you wipe each bill?
I wished I had a uv light.
Stay safe in this terrible new world we all live in now
Best not to rely on UV-C lights at all, unless you're willing to read and understand the specs, and trust the entity providing those specs.
UV-C lights for disinfecting are not the same as standard 'black light' ultraviolet lights, which produce different frequencies. Among other considerations, UV-C can easily, quickly, and permanently, damage eyes, so it's not likely to be available in a commercial product aimed at the general public. If the product is available without significant & clear warnings about the dangers of exposure and directions to avoid exposure, it's not likely to be a legitimate UV-C emitter.
It wasn't long ago that real UV-C was considered impossible to produce via LEDs. Based on what I've read recently, it is now possible, but also at a cost per LED that should let you know that an affordable personal-use UV-C LED source is extremely unlikely.
After putting on your gloves, put face masks on those gloves, so your gloves don't get the virus. Also, after putting a face mask on your face, put gloves on them so your face masks don't get the virus. I'll see if I can get some pictures to share & demonstrate.
