Some of you have heard of the incidence of COVID cases in a large vegetable greenhouse in NYS. In case you or your customers have questions on persistence of the virus on surfaces – including food and plants – I am sending you the FAQs produced by Cornell’s Institute for Food Safety. Scroll down just a bit for the section on Persistence of COVID 19. It covers a lot of different angles on persistence, with citations where available, and is updated frequently. It also covers lots of additional useful information on disinfection, distancing, employees, etc.
