One study suggests that the Coronavirus can remain viable on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Even if this is variable, it gives validity to question how long it can remain viable on paper - this is important because the daily mail delivery could be a possible vector. If so, how should it be treated? What about the viability on paper currency and coins?

In restrooms, while it is imperative to wash hands, there remains the possibility of contracting the virus when turning off the water, especially if the virus can remain viable on the handle - a hard surface. Perhaps one should turn off the water and open the restroom door handle with a paper towel. Be prepared when no paper towels are available.
