Coronavirus (COVID-19) 3/20/2020

With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic escalating I will not be accepting any local work in the shop until further notice. I will still be fabricating grill grates and other items sold on the website as long as I can get material from my suppliers. If you have something you need fabricated you can still send me your prints and I will be more than happy to fabricate it and ship it out to you. 

 In this uncertain time I have to protect my family from this virus. One member of my family has a compromised immune system and I cannot afford to bring this virus home. I hope you understand. Indian River County has has its first confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19) case this morning 3/20/2020.

 I will keep you updated as much as possible.

Please follow what the CDC, WHO, NIH and your local officials tell you to do. IF we keep our distance we can fight this virus.

  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Staying at home when sick and seeking appropriate medical care
  • Social Distancing

I received this information from the NIH regarding the Covid19

The virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is stable for several hours to days in aerosols and on surfaces, according to a new study from National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine. The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, and suggests that people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects. 

Sincerely,

Rich Gallagher

Owner/Fabricator
