The GelBottle inc : Coronavirus Business update
January 11, 2021
Since the UK government re-introduced a third lockdown on 4th January 2021, we wanted to update you on how we as a business continue to operate due to Covid-19. Our main driver since the initial lockdown has always been to maintain the safety and good health of all our employees and to provide you with the professional service and the quality products you would expect from TGB.
Thanks to the stringent safety measures we put in place in 2020 and have continued to monitor, we can confirm that no one in our warehouse operations team or our Head Office team has been taken ill with the virus. We will continue to maintain these strict safety procedures in place and ensure they continue to be adhered to by all employees. In our warehouse, each employee is temperature checked before they enter the building and again throughout the day. The wearing of gloves and masks is compulsory; breaks are taken separately, and the team continue to navigate themselves around the building keeping a 2-metre distance at all times. All common areas are disinfected twice a day and hand sanitisers are well stocked and employees must use regularly throughout the day.
Well before the crisis, we had significantly invested in our warehouse and in stock levels, and that investment has continued to pay dividends, with enough space to operate safely and within government guidelines.
With these health and safety measures in place, as per previous lockdowns, we remain fully open for business. However, naturally due to these guidelines, our time frames may fluctuate and be slightly longer than usual. However at present, shipping times remain as normal. You will be given an estimated delivery date at checkout to allow us to remain as transparent as possible with you when ordering.
We want you to order with confidence and pride that our warehouse is working safely and securely and we thank you for continued patience at this time.
The company, indeed, the whole country, is being challenged in a way that no-one could have guessed. We are confident that with the goodwill, hard work and flexibility of our exceptionally talented and motivated team, and the measures we have introduced, we will once again come through this and we will all be stronger and better than ever.
Thank you for your continued support.
