CABINET AND COUNTERTOP CARE
Recent research from the CDC and other scientists have found that COVID-19 has similar stability as the original SARS virus. The scientists found that COVID-19 (virus name SARS-CoV-2) can live on a number of different materials for varying lengths. Here’s a summary of what they found:
Lives on copper for up to 4 hours
Lives on cardboard up to 24 hours
Lives on 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel
While the study didn’t test all common household materials, it’s safe to assume that the virus can live on other things like wood, marble, tile, and stone, at least for a time. But the good news is that regular cleaning for COVID-19 can help.
