Cash Usage Regarding COVID-19

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says there is no evidence that cash transmits the coronavirus. All common surfaces can carry the COVID-19 virus or any other bacteria and viruses. This includes mobile phones, credit cards, eftpos machines, key pads, door handles, elevator buttons, paper receipts, shopping trolleys, products, shelves, etc. The key to avoiding infection when interacting with any potential carrier surface is good hand hygiene - regular and thorough hand washing and good sanitation.
