Well my D90 Arrived already so that is really impressive considering I ordered it Wednesday around 11pm!
It shipped from Hong Kong so naturally It’s fairly quick to the US West Coast aka the best coast j/k sorta of.
In all seriousness knowing what is going on in China right now, I am praying for anyone affected by or that has family that has been affected by the virus a swift recovery, please stay healthy and safe.
I am slightly concerned on the safety of bringing the package into my house right away with our little one. So it may sit for the weekend to play it extra safe. Probability not even necessary and if I was a single man it would be plugged in right now.
I went to the CDC website which says the virus should not be able to live on packages but they are also not 100% With their knowledge around the virus at this time.
Directly from the CDC
“ Q: Am I at risk for COVID-19 from a package or products shipping from China ?
A: There is still a lot that is unknown about the newly emerged COVID-19 and how it spreads. Two other coronaviruses have emerged previously to cause severe illness in people (MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV). The virus that causes COVID-19 is more genetically related to SARS-CoV than MERS-CoV, but both are betacoronaviruses with their origins in bats. While we don’t know for sure that this virus will behave the same way as SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, we can use the information gained from both of these earlier coronaviruses to guide us. In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods. Information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available.”
