Orchidia Fragrances continues to be in contact with our suppliers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Purchasing Department has obtained notification that factories in China are showing a rise in activity and there are improvements with transportation. They are also closely monitoring other countries where the number of COVID-19 cases are increasing. Alternate suppliers are being contacted if necessary. Any delays will be reported to our customers as the information is known.
Orchidia Fragrances has cancelled business travel until further notice. Movement between our buildings has been limited and all meetings are being held via phone or video conference. Onsite meetings with outside visitors have been cancelled.
We are providing our employees with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They are reminded to stay home if they feel ill. Sanitation frequency of door handles, bathrooms and break areas has been increased. Awareness notices have been posted and emailed to all employees. Social distancing (6 ft) is being practiced in our facilities where possible.
We will continue to communicate any information to our customers during this time as it becomes available.
