Warehouse Sales and Sample Sales Will Return
Hi everyone. While it is sad to say that samples sales and warehouse sales are on hold for the next 2 weeks, know that it is for the greater good of this country (or the world). Rest assured, life will return to normal. Sports, festivals, concerts and other events will resume. You can also count on the fact that warehouse sales and samples sales will return and will be better than ever, with products and prices that we have never seen. In the meantime. Please do your part. Below is a guide
What is social distancing?
Put simply, the idea is to maintain a distance between you and other people — in this case, at least six feet.
That also means minimizing contact with people. Avoid public transportation whenever possible, limit nonessential travel, work from home and skip social gatherings — and definitely do not go to crowded bars and sporting arenas.
“Every single reduction in the number of contacts you have per day with relatives, with friends, co-workers, in school will have a significant impact on the ability of the virus to spread in the population,” said Dr. Gerardo Chowell, chair of population health sciences at Georgia State University.
We know it can be tough to practice social distancing, but we need to take the necessary precautions in order to take care of ourselves and our neighbors. Despite wanting to hang out with your friends at your local bar or going to the public gym, we have to resist the urge in order to keep everyone, including ourselves, healthy! We’ve generated a list of social distancing tips to help you get through this! You got this! 
Use Delivery Services
Maybe you’re not the best cook, or grocery shopping seems overwhelming right now. There’s a solution for that and it can involve supporting local businesses, too! Food delivery services are here to help. A few examples are InstaCart, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Go Puff. These services deliver food and groceries right to your front door. Just make sure you use the leave at the door option for reducing human contact!
Video Conferencing and Facetime
Pick up the phone to stay in the loop with your friends and co-workers! It is important not to completely isolate yourself from society, otherwise, your boredom will skyrocket. You can still facetime your best friend to tell them a funny joke, or video conference your boss to come up with creative ideas for your workplace. There are many simple technology platforms such as Google Chat, Skype, or Zoom that can keep your communication lines open and interactive!
Staying away from Public Objects
The tiny decisions in our everyday life can make all the difference right now between staying healthy or getting sick. We often don’t realize how many germs are on everyday public objects such as pens, cash or ATMs, doorknobs, or even salt and pepper shakers. It is important to avoid these objects or to wash your hands right away after using them. Wiping down your phone screen and laptop are also great sanitation techniques to keep those unwanted germs away!
Avoiding any Physical Contact
This crazy time makes us want to be with our loved ones the most, but it is crucial to keep our physical distance from them as well. We can still show gratitude and love for one another without engaging in hugging, kissing, handshaking, etc. As we have all been seeing on the news, it only takes one transmitter to infect a handful of people, so for now, go with a friendly smile or wave to greet one another!
Skip the Gym
Exercise is a huge part of some of our lives, but it’s best to part ways with your gym or workout studio for a little while. Instead, opt for some at-home workouts. YouTube has thousands of workout videos, and there are even some workout apps you can download so you’re not falling behind on your workout schedule. For an extra boost of motivation, grab your roommate, sibling, or significant other to get that blood flowing in a safe but fun way!
Steer Clear of Public Transportation
Public transportation is a way of life, but if you can avoid it, you should. We know that riding buses, trains and subways are often the only option, so if you absolutely have to take them, take the necessary precautions. Keep your hands to yourself and avoid touching turnstiles, handrails, doors, etc. Use disinfectant wipes before and after sitting, use hand sanitizer frequently, and wash your hands when you can. Avoid touching your face especially if you haven’t washed your hands. Lastly, try to sit/stand as far away from other people as possible to keep yourself healthy!
Keep Yourself Occupied
There are so many things you can do in the comfort of your own home, and it’s important to keep yourself occupied so you don’t drive yourself crazy. Read a book, binge a new show, organize your living spaces, declutter, clean, redecorate, workout, watch a movie, cook or bake, or get creative with paint! There are endless possibilities you can do at home without driving yourself crazy thinking about self-quarantining. Just remember, social distancing is all for the greater good!
Take Necessary Precautions
Not all of us are working from home, including first responders. We are so thankful for our first responders during this difficult and confusing time. If you are not eligible to work from home, please take the necessary precautions to keep yourself and your neighbors healthy. Wash your hands frequently. Hand sanitizer is your friend. Be sure to wipe down surfaces that are touched often. This includes your phone! Refrain from traveling if you are feeling unwell. Do not visit with friends and family members, especially if they are older to avoid the spreading of germs!
We know that social distancing isn’t the easiest thing to do. Keep in mind that we are practicing social distancing for the greater good. We all need to do our part in making our community a safe and healthy environment for all. Please take the necessary precautions in order to keep yourself and your neighbors healthy. We hope you find this list of tips helpful as we collectively participate in creating a healthy world!
