We have a chlorine bleach solution (made to CDC spec) that we mist on pkgs and then let them sit for a day or so. Cardboard is not an especially hospitable platform for the virus.

You guys are lucky. My fedex driver made me kiss him on the lips before he released my wine to me today.

Spraying the surface to be decontaminated can disperse viral particles into the air. Instead, spray a paper towel to moisten it with the disinfectant and then wipe the surface to be cleaned.

Missed my first Fed-Ex Ground Delivery Yesterday...

Guess I shouldn't have assumed I needed to be seen for it to be left without signature.

Not wine, but...

My wife is now working from home. Her office let her order a few supplies like paper and printer cartridges. Ordered them from Amazon. Supposed to be delivered today (Friday). Been home all day, no delivery, but we've seen Amazon Prime trucks go by. Wife goes to track the order. Got delivered last night after 7:00PM. No knock, no buzzer, nothing. We were home and at home all day. Left it outside on the steps along a busy street at night. Even took a picture and said, "Left in a secure and locked area." Gone!

Just got a delivery and the FedEx guy just wanted my name and said he would take care of signing. Delivery is from Envoyer, of course.

Tues: Answered doorbell via app. I'm recovering from foot surgery, so coming to the door is a PITA. FedEx driver knows me and said no problem he'd sign for me.

Weds: I hobbled downstairs and opened the door for the UPS guy. He said he'd sign for me, and was actually nice enough to bring my boxes inside as long as I stepped/crutched 6' back.

We always have the same Fedex Express guy ... Fedex Ground and UPS drivers seem to rotate.
I'm a good man ... in fact, it's my last name

FedEx has two boxes of mine quarantined in a trailer until next Tuesday. No idea why.

No they’ve been quarantined the whole week. They made an attempt Saturday (6 days ago) and there’s been no movement since then. I got the phone number for the actual Fedex warehouse and they told me they were in a trailer quarantined until Tuesday.
