STEPS WE ARE TAKING TO RESPOND TO COVID19 TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY HEALTH AND SAFETY
Today our thoughts are with everyone impacted by COVID-19—those diagnosed with the virus, their support network and families; health professionals; people in isolation or working front line jobs to keep essential services running and those of you now out of school or work and facing an uncertain future.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, business partners, customers and community is always very important to us. We believe it will take patience, time, and a global (timely, assertive and coordinated) approach to slow the spread of the virus. And all of us immediately taking personal responsibility to do the right thing, without compromise, to get through this as safely and quickly as possible.
To do our part in slowing the spread of the virus, we have decided to temporarily cancel or postpone any face-to-face interactions / engagements until it is safe to proceed again. For the time being (subject to change, possibly with short notice) we remain open and ready to serve you online only at www.postmafineart.com. You may reach us by email at email@example.com.
Although we remain open, we ask if you can delay your purchase (or place a hold) until mid-April (or when safer to proceed per government / health officials' direction), this is the preferred route since it will facilitate us not asking our courier to put themselves at personal risk to deliver your package, or turn their attention away from delivering most critical supplies such as food, supplies and medicine to those in need.
Response time may be delayed (at times) during the next few weeks. If we do ship to you during this time, there may be courier delays that are outside of our control, especially in areas that have declared public emergency. However, rest assured, we will ensure your latest acquisition reaches you as quickly as possible despite the challenging circumstances.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Stay safe and look out for one another - we look forward to seeing you again.
