Recommendations from CA Public Health:

Wash

Hygiene Practice

If you are sick, stay home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Plan

Plan Ahead

There is no food shortage. Keep some extra food, medical supplies, and emergency kits on hand at home so you don’t have to go out often.

Monitor

Your Health

If needed, call your healthcare provider. If you don’t have a provider, call 2-1-1 for support. Seek medical help, regardless of your immigration status.

Distance

Keep Distance

Practice social distancing, avoid shaking hands, and avoid crowded areas. This will significantly reduce the chances of spreading coronovirus.

Inform

Stay Informed

Our response to COVID-19

We have put in place enhanced cleaning measures including more frequent cleaning of heavily trafficked areas including entrances, will call counters, restrooms and break rooms. Our delivery drivers will also be given gloves to use as they unload and drop off parts to our customers.

Despite the uncertainty of COVID-19, we expect to continue to deliver the same level of service excellence to our customers to the best of our abilities. While our call center remains open at this time, in the instance we may need to close to combat the challenges of this coronavirus, we will still have staff available to quote or place orders for customers by email. To get assistance, please email us at w[email protected].

We are working to prepare and address the needs of our warehouse locations on a case by case basis to combat any potential health concerns and will follow the Centers for Disease Control’s recommended preventative protocol.
