The Coronavirus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or nose discharge when an infected person coughs or sneezes (CDC). COVID-19 can be transmitted from contaminated surfaces, including produce, when touching the nose, mouth, or eyes. Surface contamination of produce can occur when people who are infected with the virus, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, touch produce in retail, food service, and distribution settings. Evidence on previous Coronavirus strains shows that good food hygiene can prevent transmission. Washing produce at home with “soap” and warm water is not effective.
