UnaliWear Statement on COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease)
UnaliWear is focused on keeping our employees, customers, and suppliers safe during this unprecedented pandemic.
Researchers are still studying COVID-19 and how to ensure that the disease’s virus cells are killed on all surfaces.
UnaliWear’s protocol is to exceed the recommendations for ensuring SARS-CoV virus cells are killed. (SARS-CoV is another coronavirus that is genetically close to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-191.) Researchers report that SARS-CoV is easily killed by heat at 56℃ (132.8℉) for 15 minutes2.
- Therefore, after packing your shipping box, our team is proactively heating your Kanega box and its contents at 60℃ (150℉) for 60 minutes to provide extra precaution for our independent and vulnerable customers.
- We recommend washing your hands after opening your cardboard shipping box and before opening your Kanega box3.
