COVID-19 Update: Still Making Easels
Hello good people,
I feel I should give an update on the status of our business in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the directives here in Virginia.
Paper Bird Studio & Design remains open for online business at this time. Because I produce my products by myself and have no physical retail location, adherence to the social distancing, sanitation, and other relevant workplace guidelines from state and federal authorities is not a problem.
That said, I am taking every precaution very seriously:
- I conduct business exclusively via this website, email, and telephone.
- No visitors are allowed in the shop (or my home) at this time.
- I clean and sanitize the shop daily, wash hands, avoid touching my face, etc.
- Incoming and outgoing packages are handled with disposable gloves and sprayed with disinfectant.
(This is simply an abundance of caution. There are no directives requiring this. Experts explain that mailed packages are unlikely to transmit pathogens in any event.)
This is a challenging time for all of us as we watch the news, learn of tragedies, see our friends and neighbors closing businesses and laying off staff. I remain confident that we will see the other side of this and be stronger for it. Thank you for your understanding and support as we all work together to get through this. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Stay safe and be well,
