According to the EPA and CDC, Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
EPA: Coronavirus and Drinking Water and Wastewater
There is no higher priority for EPA than protecting the health and safety of Americans. EPA is providing this important information about COVID-19 as it relates to drinking water and wastewater to provide clarity to the public. The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Based on current evidence, the risk to water supplies is low. Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual. EPA also encourages the public to help keep household plumbing and our nation’s water infrastructure operating properly by only flushing toilet paper.
Disinfecting wipes and other items should be disposed of in the trash, not the toilet.
CDC: Can the COVID-19 virus spread through drinking water?
The virus that causes COVID-19 has not been detected in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.
