In lieu of everything happening in our world today, it’s difficult to know what tomorrow will bring. I believe together we will get through the tough times. As you can imagine, small businesses like ZSwag.com have been and will continue to be significantly impacted in many ways.
There’s currently a lot of panic and concern surrounding coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. Clients are canceling orders, asking if their branded hats, USB’s and other merchandise carry the Coronavirus (they don’t). Safety is of utmost importance during these times, and as we continue to learn more about this pandemic, everyone should know they are with my thoughts and prayers. I want you to know that we are taking measures to ensure our products are being safely made and that our team members are safe. Here are the steps we have taken:
- All office personnel are now working remote as of last week
- Continued production with enhanced cleanliness procedures and discontinuation of client pickups
- Guidelines outlined by the CDC are being closely followed
- Our suppliers are operating as normal and we are able to fulfill new orders (there may be some delays as you can imagine)
I want to clarify some misconceptions about coronavirus. Clients are canceling orders, asking if their branded hats, USB’s and other merchandise carry the Coronavirus. While the virus can live on plastic and stainless steel surfaces for 2-5 days, it’s more commonly spread through droplets in the air, like if an infected person were to cough or sneeze in your general area. Wash your drinkware products with soap or diluted bleach solutions before use. (ServiceMar)
