How long does the virus survive on surfaces?

Studies have shown that the COVID-19 virus can survive for up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel, less than 4 hours on copper and less than 24 hours on cardboard. The most important thing to know about coronavirus on surfaces is that the surfaces can easily be cleaned with common household disinfectants that will kill the virus.

Dear Community Healthcare Workers

Thank you for waking up every day and deciding to be brave. You’re my hero.
