COVID-19 policies for Daisy Chain Book Co.
How is Daisy Chain Book Co. being COVID safe? Glad you asked!
Reports from the WHO (https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses) tells us that the virus can last on some surfaces for an unknown number of days but the potential transfer of the virus on packages delivered is low. Nevertheless, I have been extra careful with the exchange of books to readers by establishing a clean and contact-less method of getting your books into your hands..
1. Donated books are picked up from front porches, boxes and bags handled with latex gloves, and then donations are left for 3+ days before they are processed.
2. When books are ordered, they are picked and wiped with disinfectant (as the cover material permits) and packed into bags/shipping boxes with latex gloves.
3. Wearing latex gloves and an N95 mask, books are delivered to front porches, and I use a "Ring & Run" approach to adhere to social distancing rules. Bag is placed on the porch and I ring the doorbell to let Readers know their books have arrived, and I wave at them from the curb.
