COVID-19 Resources

Important Notice: 

There is positive news from China that production and product certifications as well as container loading inspections are moving forward, and containers should begin to transit from China soon to the U.S. ports. We want to remind our members that based on current information available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it appears that transmission of the COVID-19 from imported goods is highly unlikely. The CDC explains that, although there are still a lot of unknowns about COVID-19, “because of poor survivability of these Coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures.” The CDC also reports that, “Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods.”
