That is great news! I didn't think that I read where it was being transferred through food or packaging. I'm glad they came out and said it though. I bet it puts a lot of people's minds at ease.

Yes, I couldn't agree more. I know some people who were afraid of getting the virus through food. They wouldn't order out or anything. This is good news. Let's hope the news we keep getting about the virus is good.
