Hi All,

I hope you and your loved ones are happy, healthy and nCV-19 free.

Looking for updated information on novel Corona virus-19 formite survival times? And does anyone know how the virus lasted/ survived on the Princess cruise ship?

Lastly, my family has heard that the virus likes to stick to clothes and hair. has anyone heard anything about virus viability on clothes, hair or skin?

Thank you in advance. Keep up the good fight!
