The current advice is that it is safe to receive parcels, although we do recommend washing your hands after handling one.
According to the WHO and the Robert Koch Institute, there is no conclusive evidence that an infection with any type of coronavirus is possible through contact with objects or packages, including those arriving from areas where cases have been reported.
Our couriers suggest you choose a safe place for your parcel to be delivered and you can request a ‘contact-free’ delivery by popping this in the ‘other instructions’ box of checkout or through your tracking information.
