Camera gear shopping from NY retailers - virus safety question

My go to source is B&H Photo.  The main store in NYC is shut down and mail orders are still operational and shipped from a different borough or maybe from NJ (online orders).

That whole area is pretty much an epicenter now.

Any thoughts to the virus transmission safety from ordering from your Adorama's and B&H since it seems if you are breathing the air you are at risk.

So much out there about how the virus lives and is transmitted.  If the guy packing the box sneezes or happens to cough on the day it gets picked and packed then what ?

Plus are these places still receiving inventory that could come from overseas?


For myself I will say I have stopped all gear purchases from B&H from batteries, bags to lenses from the smallest gadget cant really go anyplace or would you want to.

I hope this all ends soon with no more lives lost.
