Coronavirus: Our health & safety measures
Oh Goodie Goodies is closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the actions taken by local, State and Federal government agencies.
We have implemented several stringent measures to protect the health and safety of our team without hindering our ability to serve our customers.
As of March 9th, 2020, all employees able to work remotely were immediately required to do so.
To protect the health and safety of our warehouse team, access to the facility has been strictly limited to individuals representing our shipping carriers, and they are confined to an area of the warehouse upon arrival.
Masks and temperature checks have been made available to the warehouse team, while fastidious hygiene, safe distancing and additional cleanliness practices have also been employed.
Our shipping carriers, such as the US Postal Service (USPS), FedEx and UPS continue to deliver Oh Goodie Goodies orders across the United States, although we are currently unable to guarantee our usual same day domestic shipping.
Regarding the safety of delivered packages, the CDC, WHO and Surgeon General state that there is very low risk of coronavirus spreading from products and packages, because of the “poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces.” The various temperatures that packages go through during the delivery process – sometimes taking days – mean that coronaviruses are not likely to survive.
As a precaution, Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has confirmed that while the chances of the coronavirus being transferred via delivered packages is very low, it is recommended that everyone wipe these down if possible.
On behalf of everyone at Oh Goodie Goodies, we extend our enormous gratitude to the health workers, community leaders, essential workers and governments who are working to contain the spread of COVID-19 and protect our families and communities.
