Dear Beads of Courage Family,
The health and safety of our members, member hospitals, staff, volunteers and supporters is always a high priority with Beads of Courage. As COVID-19/Coronavirus continues to spread in the United States, we want to assure you of our commitment to the safety and health of all.
Beads of Courage implements measures to reduce the spread of any infection as a standard of practice. Staff and volunteers are not permitted to come to Beads of Courage headquarters when ill. Hand washing is required before working with Beads of Courage materials, hand sanitizer is readily available, and workspaces are regularly sanitized. This is a standard today and always.
In regards to the use of materials, the CDC has stated, “It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.” All Beads of Courage materials can be sanitized with disinfectant wipes . The CDC has also stated that “there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over periods of days or weeks at ambient temperatures … Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods.” For more information, please visit the CDC website.
We are grateful for all those who shop with Beads of Courage because your purchase directly supports our mission.
Beads of Courage, Inc.
