With the number of cases of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus 2019 or SARS-CoV-2) skyrocketing, tomorrow, March 13, will be our last day of a full staff. To limit exposure and to help protect our employees, we will be implementing some precautions.
- Starting today, no non-essential people will be permitted in our facility.
- Starting on March 16, we will have limited hours of operation each day.
- We will only accept and ship orders for items that are in-stock as long as UPS and USPS are taking packages.
- Any items on backorder will be dropped from your order to prevent a backlog.
We have informed our staff to collect items for up to 60 days of in-home confinement, including a full fuel tank in their cars. From the beginning of our self-isolation, we will be replacing smoke detectors, painting rooms at home, repairing leaking faucets, and playing with the kids. Because our staff is our most valuable asset, they will be paid during this closure. We believe that investing in our team is the right thing to do.
As you prepare for self-isolation in your area, consider teaching your kids how to make soap, lotions, and lip balms. Also, consider placing a box of soap at your mailbox to allow your neighbors to take a bar or two. We will get through this pandemic if we work together.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us!
I’m very happy to see the policy that you posted. Taking care of your employees is the right thing to do, but many employers will probably not see the way you do Your attitude has touched me and I am pledging to endeavor to do more business with you in the future than I have been able to do in the past.
The suggestion to put some soap out where your neighbors can take it has inspired me! I live in the country so neighbors are scarce but I can take some to give out at church, give some to the Food Pantry at church and to the Women’s Shelter in a neighboring town. Thanks for the idea.
.Best wishes to everyone during this time of trial!
Thank you! Please stay safe and take care!
Human kindness goes a long way, especially during times such as these. We shall weather this storm. Thank you for your inspiring words and recognizing that taking care of people is #1 priority. Then again, that’s always been your company’s policy.
Hope you are all staying well. Just wondering if you have supplies to make hand sanitizer and household cleaners. If so I would love to get the supplies to do this.
