MARCH 13, 2020
TO OUR VALUED GCM CUSTOMERS:
As we should all know, the World is in distress due to the alarming rate that the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is spreading and the danger it presents to many in our communities.
As responsible Filipino-Americans, we should be aware of the status in the U.S. and more importantly in our homeland, due to the proximity of Philippines to the epicenter of COVID-19 in China.
GCM first put out a notice earlier in the year when COVID-19 was first brought to light and that it may cause some delays in our shipments.
At that time, knowledge about the virus and its impact was still, even to this day, relatively unknown.
On March 12, 2020, President Duterte made the public announcement that Metro Manila will be placed on "lockdown" from March 15, 2020 to April 14, 2020. This means no entry or exit into or out of Metro Manila for 30 days.
What does this mean for the boxes that we sent?
GCM will be working around the clock to deliver as many boxes as possible that is currently at our Manila Warehouse up till the moment the "lockdown" begins.
To the best of our current knowledge, this lockdown only pertains to Metro Manila area so we will do what we can for the surrounding areas in Luzon.
The boxes shipped to our Cebu Warehouse will still remain business as usual, and continue deliveries as quickly and safely as possible.
The shipments that these events affect the most are the shipments already in Manila Warehouse and the incoming shipments to Manila during the "lockdown" time frame.
As usual we will continue to guarantee the safety of the packages that you have sent and will continue to send.
Can we still continue to send boxes?
Our US branches are still operating business as usual, and we pray that the World will figure lasting solutions to this epidemic.
Just please be aware of your personal health and how it affects those around you.
We have taken the necessary precautionary steps in our branches to disinfect and continue to keep our locations as safe as possible.
Please take the time to visit the World Health Organization (WHO) website on how we as individuals can do our part for the community.
We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
But we ask and appreciate everyones patience and understanding during these troubling times.
