As you heard from media, Coronavirus is raging throughout the world, and also in Europe and Italy.
J-D Headquarter is right located in Lombardy, one of the two region under yellow area.
A number of measures were taken by Italy to reduce the social life, and slow down the pace of contagion. The reason is to keep the hospitals not too full.
Hopefully, the logistic is still fully working.
Also, It‘s known that the coronaviruses can’t survive on dry packages, for long travels.
Coronaviruses could resist alive up to 4 hours on porous surfaces like paper and up to 9 hours on inox steel BUT inside of a wet bubble.
So a package that travels for 3/5 days on planes and trucks in the cold goes through an environment sanitation.
BUT You never know if the local courier making the delivery has coronavirus.
For this reason I recommend, if possible, to handle the pack with gloves (of any type, including fabric) and to place the outer packaging near a radiator, for a pair of hours. Wash your hands with soap.
The radiator will dry out the situation and will dehydrate any viruses that have survived a courier sneeze.
You can open the outer package and eventually repeat with the SONY packaging.
To be more safe (for me), I modified the J-D workflow to be completely based on courier, with no physical pickup at the local wholesaler.
This mean there are no longer undefined “in stock” items, but every product will show a precise stock number.
Finally, at the moment there isn’t any slowness with couriers toward EU locations and USA. (I am not sure on exotic locations like India and Mauritius islands, but that location where already excluded).
If the situation changes, there will be a quick update on the website and Twitter.Good reading
