We've been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak since mid-January. While there are many unknowns about this virus, and the worldwide cases are still low, BestGrips is taking this threat seriously. While we always clean grips before packaging, we're expanding the level of that and closing BestGrips HQ to the public as of today.
Since our start, we've been committed to making our grips and covers in the US, and we will continue production through this crisis. Order shipments will continue as long as FedEx and USPS remain operational. BestGrips is in the middle of the most ambitious build-up of inventory in our history, and our current leather inventory is strong enough to limit the incoming shipment of supply and materials comfortably.
Until such time as the world ends, we will act as though it intends to spin on. Life is fragile, but our resolve and ability to adapt and survive are strong. We will overcome this, and life will go on. In the meantime, take social distancing seriously, wash your hands, and follow the CDC guidelines (here). We shall overcome this!
