With Mother’s Day around the corner and the coronavirus pandemic still crippling the country, one question many are asking is, “is it safe to send Mom flowers on Mother’s Day?” 

According to experts, the thing you should be asking yourself is if you’ve been ok with other deliveries coming to your home since stay-at-home orders have been put in place. 

“Sending your mom flowers has no more risk than if you send her gifts from an online retailer or have a nice meal from a restaurant delivered,” Brian Labus, a professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ School of Public Health told The Huffington Post.

One doctor, Jagdish Khubchandani, says the risk of getting infected with COVID-19 is low and a way to stay safe is to use the “contactless delivery option.” 

Other professionals say to go with a florist you trust and have mom wash her hands once she touches her flowers for Mother’s Day.
