Just what the title says. Will you guys still receive packages from Australia with everything that is going on?
hmm… maybe i should buy something, and find out. not an excuse to buy another yoyo…
I’ll let you know in the next day or two. I’ve got a box coming from Australia that says it just left for the states
I just got a package of bearings from china last week. I had ordered them a month ptior.
One source, “you probably don’t need to worry about getting coronavirus from the packages you’re ordering, but here’s what you can do to be sure”. See https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-risk-from-packages-how-to-clean-if-you-want-2020-3
You will. I have multiple packages coming from outside and they are all in transit. And they’ll reach unless there’s restriction on cargos too
I’ve got packages from Japan, Indonesia, The Philippines , and Singapore over the past week or 2. Haven’t had a problem, but I wouldn’t order anything from China, cause it might get quarantined for a year.
I think items have to be submerged in a bucket of hand cleaner and packed in the box with face masks instead of bubble wrap.
Thats how im sending all my packages any way. But I hermetically seal all my boxes too as an extra precaution.
where are you finding all those hermits agreeing to be shipped with your yo-yos though?
I have your bloodcell coming in that just left Australia today, and two lightsabers LITERALLY FROM WUHAN CHINA arriving today. The sabers are coming DHL so results may vary, but I don’t see why we wouldn’t get them. Perhaps a delay due to lower staffing in customs facilities and general transportation chains.
Our local Church is full of em and theyre are just dying to get out and about regardless of the current pandemic. Initially I did found it hard getting them in the box but I worked it out.
your dedication to your craft is admirable @zerocool, bravo!
im afraid id be refusing the lightsabers at the door. Or maybe 10 feet down the drive.
Nah I’ve been waiting a WHILE for them. Also Me and my wife both work in a contact center of like 500 people, and today is my first work from home day. If we were gonna get it, we got it.
Thank you Eric. I try my best…
I damn well hope so in order to receive my new yoyo
Otherwise im pretty sure that trade is still open. However I just ordered some stuff on Amazon, and the shipping guarantee has been delayed a bit, so perhaps it will take longer than usual.
As far as I’ve heard, the US is still receiving goods from overseas, and according to the CDC, it’s not likely that you’ll get coronavirus through a package, esp given how long it takes for things to ship internationally.
Edit: TL;DR coronaviruses don’t seem to survive well on surfaces period and especially in the conditions packages are exposed to.
Edit 2: But obvs exercise caution and disinfect packages and wash your hands to be extra safe.
I posted from the UK today and they are still shipping to the US and the US is still receiving shipments as of now, Ive been informed, albeit things might take a little longer than usual.
