As we navigate the current health crisis together, we continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of our team members, their families and our customers.
As a measure of social distancing and to minimize any potential risk of exposure for both our carriers and our customers, all deliveries will not require a signature.
The World Health Organization has provided guidance that the risk of COVID-19 infection from a package that has moved, traveled, or been exposed to different conditions and temperatures is low.
We are working closely with FedEx to responsibly manage this evolving situation. You can find detailed information about the steps each of our reputable carriers are taking during this time on the below sites:
Please be assured that Boys Republic has robust hygiene and storage practices for our products that are intended to maintain their integrity and ensure their safe use. In light of COVID-19, not only are we following those robust practices, they are now receiving an even greater focus. Currently, both the FDA and CDC consider the risk of transmission through greenery and fruit to be very low. In fact, the FDA has stated that they are not aware of any reports of transmission of COVID-19 through food, and the CDC has said that there is no evidence of food supporting transmission of COVID-19.
We are in frequent communication with all of our suppliers to confirm they are working in accordance with the federal, state and local food safety laws, as well as recent guidance and precautions issued by the CDC. As a company, we take safety very seriously and continually monitor to ensure all of our facilities are practicing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's) as defined by the FDA which include, but are not limited to, sanitizing, hand washing/drying, wearing gloves and conducting temperature checks of all employees prior to them reporting to work.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and hope that you will find this information useful and reassuring. We encourage you to continue to seek out credible sources, such as the CDC, regarding this topic. The CDC web site is located at www.cdc.gov
