I think you are absolutely right. Containment measure can decrease the amount of individuals with severe symptoms at any given time and thereby not overload hospitals too much. End result will be less casualties but longer pandemic.

Outside of living organisms viruses only survive for a few hours. Ordering packaged food and waiting a few hours before handling it should be pretty safe.

Theoretically the virus might survive in animal products like meat for longer time, just go vegetarian if you want to be on the safe side.

If possible ask them to leave the package outside your front door and wait a few hours before you take it in.
