The virus that causes COVID-19 travels in saliva, so, sure, swapping spit with an infected person could transfer the virus to you.
Using a washing machine
Include your mask with your regular laundry. Use regular laundry detergent and the appropriate settings according to the fabric label.
Wash your mask with tap water and laundry detergent or soap. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove detergent or soap.
Currently there is no evidence of food, food containers, or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19.
Like other viruses, it is possible that the virus that causes COVID-19 can survive on surfaces or objects. If you are concerned about contamination of food or food packaging, wash your hands after handling food packaging, after removing food from the packaging, before you prepare food for eating and before you eat.
Before eating, rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running tap water, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten. Scrub firm produce with a clean produce brush. For canned goods, remember to clean lids before opening.
When unpacking groceries, refrigerate or freeze meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, and other perishables—like berries, lettuce, herbs, and mushrooms—within 2 hours of purchasing.
Regularly clean and sanitize kitchen counters using a commercially available disinfectant product.
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.
