    As I'm shut in for 12 weeks and not even allowed to go shopping I was wondering if people were still posting items of kit. I saw a turntable I wanted in Russia but as it is now I won't add to the burden of all that would be involved in getting it here so I've contacted the seller explaining the situation and my concerns. Are you all still posting stuff

    one still has to get food and pay the bills so as long as one keeps within government guidelines i think one can still post

    I suppose the best way is for the courier to collect.

    ...but should we be asking a courier to make what is in reality 'a non-essential' trip?

    ...and as the virus has a 72 hour shelf life on hard surfaces is this another method of travel for the virus to get around?

    ...just my take on the situation....

    ....stay safe, enjoy the music while we can, swop kit later!

    That's an assumption, but not definitive.

    Surely if the virus could live on parcels all delivery's would have been stopped.

    I wouldn't make that assumption at all. Currently, anything delivered here is being quarantined for a couple of weeks.

    Why not? There’d be absolutely no purpose in social distancing, isolation and semi-lockdown if the virus could be spread on mail.
