Anything can hold on to the virus it is just a matter of how long but given that you're surrounded by surfaces capable of being contaminated by the people around you they don't pose any more threat than others and given that they are porous probably less.

Wash your hands and don't touch your face.

Only 24 hrs?
Well that's OK then.
How many hands touch a cardboard sleeve in 24 hrs and how many of those hands could be contaminating that sleeve during those 24 hours?

Every surface is potentially continuously contaminated. That's all you need to know. Work on that basis.
