How We are Dealing with Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 March 19 2020, 4 Comments
Hello, Friends. I certainly hope you all are doing good, but mostly I hope you and your family are healthy during this crazy pandemic our world is fighting. I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that we are still open and fulfilling orders daily. We are keeping in close touch with UPS, and our daily pickups are continuing - for now. Although our county has been hit with several cases of the virus, there are no known positive cases in our small town. As of today, all restaurants and bars have been closed for dine-in, our schools are closed until mid-April, and our local retail establishments have temporarily changed business hours. Some larger stores outside of our town have completely closed temporarily. We here at our little business (there are just a few of us!) typically don't do much but go to work and go home! We have very few visitors, and we usually deliver fish food to our local customers. However, we are following the guidelines for cleanliness and hand washing. Believe me, when you are handling fish food, you wash your hands a lot anyway! We were informed that the likelihood of the virus contaminating shipping packaging, including cardboard, is low. Additionally, if it were to be released on a package, the virus would not live more than 24 hours on these surfaces. If you have a concern, I think it would be fine to spray the BOX with a disinfectant before you open it, but I don't think it would be necessary to spray the bag.
Stay Informed and Be Safe! We thank you for your business, and please know you can contact us any time!
