Yes! The CDC and WHO have confirmed that COVID-19 has a short survival rate on hard surfaces, 24 hours on cardboard and 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel.

Our manufacturer acted quickly during the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China, placing all staff members on temporary quarantine and following strict local health codes to eliminate the potential of contamination or spread.
Additionally, our manufacturer is currently working to minimize any risk of transmission by taking appropriate precautions and implementing infection control measures during production. These measures include temperature checking of employees 4 times every day, keeping records on every employee, requiring that employees wear face masks and clean their hands with disinfectant, and disinfecting the factory floor and office spaces every day.
