Apple is not yet providing shipping details through its own tracking system, but customers in the United States who are receiving their packages through UPS can use the track by reference feature with a phone number or an order number to track their packages.

UPS My Choice, which displays upcoming deliveries in a calendar view for those who sign up for an account, also lists ‌iPad Pro‌ shipments that are in transit at the current time. Signing up for a UPS My Choice account is free.

CoronaVirus can live on surfaces for several days so I'd choose the slowest delivery option just to be cautious.

Most likely source of infection will be from domestic UPS workers. The number of cases in the U.S. is rising exponentially and there's no PPE. While China is swimming in PPE and has no new reported cases.

For people who are concerned, they should sanitize their deliveries from UPS and ask the driver to leave it at the door.

The victim blaming from ministry of misinformation. Imagine someone with STD/HIV, not notifying partners for several months, knowingly infected people, silenced those that got infected then blamed the victims. There are local laws against that and it should be expanded on a global scale.
Nothing to do with blaming. Right now, it's about slowing community infections.

The reality is, telling people to choose the "slowest delivery option just to be cautious" is meaningless given there are 16,000+ cases in the U.S. Even Canada has closed the U.S. border. The most likely source will be the UPS delivery person.
