Carolina Office Solutions & COVID-19

Cassaundra Thomas | 03-30-20

As the numbers of COVID-19 cases increase in North Carolina, Governor Cooper has issued a Stay at Home order that is in effect until the end of April. We recognize and understand the seriousness that this order and COVID-19 places on all residence of North Carolina.

As we provide office furniture to essential businesses as well as product essential for people to work from home, we are remaining open.  Here is a quick snap-shop of how we have adjusted our warehouse and showroom spaces to ensure that we are following the guidelines that the CDC and local offices have issued.

  • Restricting in house employees
    1. Many employees are working from home when they can, and we have restricted our staff. Working on a skeleton crew, we are able to maintain business and complete orders.
  • Restricting hours of operations
    1. We have reduced the days and times when members of the public are permitted in the building. Monday & Fridays we are closed to the public. Those who must do work are able to come in and do what they need to. (4) appointments a day are permitted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
  • Appointment Guidelines
    1. Only 1 appointment at a time is permitted. No overlaps, and only 1-3 people are allowed on 1 appointment as long a they are representing the same business or household.
    2. 15 minutes are placed in between each appointment to allow for disinfecting and overlap of times.
    3. Pick up hours are the same, those picking up are not permitted in the building. They are to go straight to the back dock for loading.
  • Sanitization & Screening
    1. Prior to scheduling, the client is asked a couple questions to rule out that they have not had or been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
    2. When they arrive for their appointment, they are greeted with a sanitization station and then they sign off on a screening questionnaire form
  • Employee Screening
    1. Each employee who enters the business to do essential work are required to follow the same steps as the clients described in #4.
    2. If an employee has any symptoms or realizes they’ve been in contact with someone who has symptoms, they are to report to their manager and not come into the building.

These are just a few of the things that we have changed in our warehouse and showroom space that help us to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 illness.

We thank you all in your understanding of these guidelines. We want to be able to serve our community as long as possible, and these are some things that we have to do.

  • Expanding our Website
    • Typically, we only have bulk items on our website. We have incuded the majority of what is available on our floor to encourage people to browse our website rather than coming into our warehouse space.
    • We've also lowered our restrictions and prices on our pre-owned products to help accomodate those in isolation

These are just a few of the things that we have changed in our warehouse and showroom space that help us to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 illness.
