Common questions
How does COVID-19 spread?
How long after exposure can it take to develop COVID-19 symptoms?
Can COVID-19 be transmitted through food or food packaging?
Given that the number of virus particles that could be theoretically picked up by touching a surface would be very small and the amount needed for infection via oral inhalation would be very high, the chances of infection by touching the surface of food packaging or eating food is considered to be extremely low. The USDA and the FDA are sharing this update based upon the best available information from scientific bodies across the globe, including a continued international consensus that the risk is exceedingly low for transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to humans via food and food packaging.
What can I do to slow the spread of COVID-19?
• Wear a mask over your nose and mouth. • Stay 6 feet away from others. • Gather virtually or outdoors. • Make sure indoor spaces are well ventilated. • Wash your hands with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. • Get vaccinated when it’s available to you.
