More information is coming out about the coronavirus (COVID-19) every day, and the situation is changing rapidly. As new information comes out, we have been hearing questions from our customers that we would like to address.
We at the Sunglass Museum want to assure you that, under regular circumstances, we already maintain the highest levels of cleanliness, sanitation, and safety. In the wake of current events, we are also taking additional proactive measures, including meticulous cleaning and sanitation of all products before shipping, using a 70%-alcohol solution, per CDC recommendations. This medical-grade cleaning solution helps to sanitize and disinfect frames and surfaces.
This is on top of the fact that there is [no concern that our vintage stock has been affected], as all of our products are an average of 40 years old and have been in our own warehouse for at least a year.
We urge everyone to take the precautions recommended by our local health care officials. Because COVID-19 (as well as other viruses) often gets into the body through the nose, mouth, and eyes, wearing eyeglasses and/or sunglasses can offer you an additional barrier of protection. Read more on our blog about [how eyewear can help protect you].
We wish everyone good health during these stressful and unprecedented times.
