We continue to follow the strategies and measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health departments. The CDC has information available on its website at https://www.coronavirus.gov that provides the latest information about COVID-19.
To reduce health risks for our employees and customers and to safeguard our operational and business continuity, Pink Crafts Panda is doing the following:
- Ensuring of face coverings, including masks, gloves and cleaning and sanitizing products are available every day through our supply chain.
- Recommending that employees wear face coverings while at work, when proper social distancing cannot be achieved.
- Updated our cleaning policies to ensure that all cleaning occurs in a manner consistent with CDC guidance relating to this pandemic.
According to the CDC, the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). “COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person in respiratory droplets from someone who is infected.” (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/how-covid-spreads.html) The CDC recognizes that while it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#How-COVID-19-Spreads) And importantly, the CDC and the United States Surgeon General have indicated that it is unlikely that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail due to the poor survivability of these types of coronavirus on surfaces.
