According to the US's Center for Disease Control (CDC):
"...there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods".
The CDC goes on to explain, "because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets."
The WHO (World Health Organization) has not recommended any restriction of trade to and from China. We will continue to monitor these guidelines and update our policies accordingly.
