As our daily lives are turned upside down with the continuing COVID-19 public health crisis, the SenesTech team is taking a moment to connect with our base of customers, PMPs, and industry thought leaders.

No matter the moment we find ourselves in, your health and safety is always our top priority. The uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 uncovers new questions every day, often about the simplest things we take for granted, like receiving shipments in the mail.

Here are our recommendations for receiving and handling SenesTech shipments, safely.

Safe Receipt of SenesTech Shipments regarding COVID-19

As social distancing keeps us within the confines of our own homes, more consumers than ever are turning to online ordering and shipping of desired goods. The question is, how do we accept a package safely, without fear of COVID-19 pathogens possibly clinging to its surface?

Since COVID-19 is a new viral strain, public officials have yet to make official recommendations on how to accept packages and even food deliveries safely.

But, here is what we do know about the lifespan of COVID-19 on certain surfaces:

  • Cardboard: 24 hours
  • Plastic: 72 hours
  • Stainless steel: 72 hours
  • Airborne: 3 hours

When it comes to SenesTech shipments of ContraPest, you can support safer handling by leaving your package outside for 24 hours before bringing indoors and opening.

Once inside, discard the packaging materials right away and be sure to thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces the box was set on while you opened it.

As always, our team is here to support you during this difficult time and invites you to contact us directly with any questions or concerns you have. We’re all in this together! Stay safe!
