Embrace Autism has always been dedicated to research-based information. Misinformation and a lack of control pose a significant threat to our health and increase our stress and fears. We believe the latest research-based information on COVID-19 will lessen these concerns.
It is essential to have accurate, up-to-date information that comes directly from evidence-based journals.
Inaccurate and partial information is dangerous because it leaves much room for assumptions and interpretations, and ultimately increases rather than alleviates anxiety.
Vague statements have been released as to the length of time the virus remains contagious in the environment. On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, research clearly defined the length of times COVID-19 remains airborne (droplets from a sneeze or cough) hang in the air for 30 minutes, while the virus can live for 24 hours on cardboard. This information lets us know how long before our home-delivered packages are safe to handle and also explains why it is important to self-quarantine or shelter-in-place (to avoid-borne droplets that remain after a person has left the area) and use social distancing to keep ourselves safe.
Please help keep all of us safe.
