How should I wash fruits and vegetables to kill COVID-19?

It is recommended that you wash or scrub fruits and vegetables under running water before eating, preparing, or cooking. Do not wash fruits or vegetables with soap, detergents, or other disinfecting products. Washed fruits and vegetables should then be dried and stored separate from other raw or unwashed foods.
