8 covid_19

// MARCH 9, 2020 / WHO - Word Health Organization

?How long does the virus survive on surfaces?

"It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).

If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with simple disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose."


?Is it safe to receive a package from any area where COVID-19 has been reported?

"Yes. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low."

// MARCH 4, 2020 / CDC - Center for Disease Control and Prevention

"COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning how it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States. (...) It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads."

    ? what's the deal with www.mailart.pt

    like it or not, www.mailart.pt lists all active mailart open calls sorted out by due date, as well as exhibitions, artists and links of interest ... but it may end up being much more

    only after starting this listing, at 01_august_2018, i did realized the extraordinary amount of new open calls coming up all the time ... almost 20 new ones per month! and that's only those that i can grasp... from automatic bot searches, constant research, direct emailing and from those special people that keep me updated on what is going on on the mail art community


    // check the FAQ section to learn how to contribute to this archive and how to submit artwork to the listed open calls
