As part of the REALM project’s research, Battelle has conducted three natural 
attenuation studies to provide information on how long the virus may survive on 
materials common to archives, libraries, and museums. The studies were 
conducted by applying the virulent SARS-CoV-2 virus on five materials held at 
standard room temperature (68°F to 75°F) and relative humidity conditions (30 
to 50 percent).

Results show that after five days of quarantine in an unstacked configuration, 
the SARS-CoV-2 virus was not detected on the storage bag (flexible plastic) or 
the DVD. The storage container (rigid plastic), plexiglass, and the USB 
cassette all showed detectable virus at five days. Day five was the final 
timepoint tested.

Thanks.
