The COVID-19 pandemic and the world’s response have escalated quickly the past few days so I feel obligated to send out a message to all of you.
First and foremost, I want to say ‘Thank you!’ for your continued support of my small business. It really means a lot to me. Many businesses are struggling right now and I am feeling lots of love as your orders have continued to come in. I run my business completely from home and I want to let you know that nothing has changed on my end. I am stocked up on materials and am still sewing orders from my website. If anything changes I will let you know.
In response to rumors/myths that have been circulating about spreading the disease through the mail...
According to both the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, the risk of transmitting the disease via packages is very low. It is unlikely that the virus is able to survive on packages as they are transported through varying temperatures and conditions over the course of several days.
Please stay informed and have good common sense the next several weeks as situations evolve. Wash your hands often, stay home if you feel sick, and take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Again, thank you for all your business and support.
