COVID-19 Update

March 24, 2020

The impact of COVID-19 is changing by the hour.

Yesterday, The Ontario Government announced mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces in the Province of Ontario to further contain the spread of COVID-19. The list of essential workplaces in response to COVID-19 has been announced.

Effective immediately, to abide by the protocol that was set out by the Government, the factory will be shut down for 14 days.

A plea to Canada’s industrial base to make essential items to fight COVID-19 has been made. And we have responded.

By investing in research and development efforts and continue to have open channels of communication with various levels of government offices and agencies, an essential service, skeleton crew is on standby to address any immediate needs.

We hope you will join us in the fight against COVID-19 and help protect the health and well-being of citizens across our nation.

If your business has the capabilities to fight COVID-19, we encourage you to contribute through the Ontario Together website at www.ontario.ca/OntarioTogether or on the Calling All Suppliers - Help Canada Combat COVID-19 page posted on the Buyandsell.gc.ca

We are in this together.

Sincerely yours,

COVID-19 Update

March 23, 2020

The Ontario Government has announced mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces in the Province of Ontario to further contain the spread of COVID-19. Medical offices, supermarkets, pharmacies, LCBO outlets, banks, and takeout restaurants will be allowed.

Essential manufacturers and supply-chain businesses will be permitted to operate, with details of exactly which businesses will be designated as essential and non-essential to be released on Tuesday March 24, 2020.

Premier Doug Ford has made a plea to Ontario’s industrial base to make essential items to fight COVID-19 right here at home. Economic Development Minister Vic Fedeli has said that the government will leave no stone unturned in finding facilities that can make what is needed.

Over the upcoming days, WS & Co./Redwood Classics Apparel will know if we fall into the “essential manufacturer” category. Until then, we will continue to be fully operational. 

More than ever, we are humbled by our makers and supply-chain partners’ roles in rebuilding the textile community in Canada, and now, to keep our citizens safe.

If your business has the capabilities to fight COVID-19, we encourage you to contribute through the Ontario Together website at www.ontario.ca/OntarioTogether

During this unprecedented time, we are closely monitoring the situation and will reach out with any further updates.

 

Sincerely yours,

COVID-19 Update for Distributors

March 17, 2020

For our family of makers here at Redwood Classics Apparel, the well-being and safety of our internal and external stakeholders are of critical importance to us. As one of your trusted supply-chain partners, we too, are monitoring new developments regarding COVID-19 closely.  

We are open and fully operational, taking precautionary and proactive measures to minimize COVID-19 transmission in the community. If you have a scheduled appointment or plan to drop by for a visit, please call or email us (info@redwoodclassics.net) ahead of time to reschedule your appointment, or choose to have the appointment by phone or video conference instead. 

If you have traveled outside of Canada within the past 14 days, or if you have interacted with someone who has been diagnosed with COVIDS-19 or are awaiting test results, please follow Health Canada recommendations. This includes self-isolation for those who have contracted the virus or encounter someone who has tested positive, or who have returned from travel from a country that public health officials have deemed to be high risk.

We wish to assure you that we have asked our internal stakeholders who meet the above criteria to adhere to the same guidelines and follow the directions of local public health authorities. 

As an end-to-end premium apparel manufacturer, inventory levels of our in-stock garments do fluctuate as we serve many faithful distributors. We do, however, expect our inventory levels and our Just-in-Time (JIT) delivery model to remain strong.

During this unprecedented time, we are closely monitoring the situation through various governmental agencies and public health officials and will reach out with any further updates that could impact your business. 

 

Warmly yours, 

Kathy Cheng

President, Redwood Classics Apparel
