Fine Art Shippers is open for business, and we continue to provide our services as far as the current situation allows while doing everything possible to ensure the safety and health of our clients, employees, and partners. We closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and follow all the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the government bodies to make timely decisions around the health and welfare of our staff, clients, and friends.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new strain of the coronavirus, which has not been previously identified in humans. It first appeared at the end of December 2019 in Wuhan, China, but quickly spread around the world, affecting over 150 countries on five continents. The global pandemic of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, hitting nations and impacting all spheres of life. For today, there are nearly 200,000 confirmed cases, with China and Europe at the center of the crisis. Investigations are underway to determine the source of the virus and how it spreads.
In these difficult times, not only people but also many businesses have been hurt by the spread of the coronavirus disease. Fine art shipping industry is no exception. With lots of international flights canceled and most events postponed, to transport art smoothly is now almost impossible. Many of our global partners are closed, but Fine Art Shippers continues to operate, keeping the shipments as uninterrupted as possible in the current situation. We want to assure you that the safety and health of our clients and employees is our top priority, and we strictly follow the recommendations of the government agencies and public health experts.
Fine Art Shippers monitors and evaluates the coronavirus impacts all over the world, trying to maintain a seamless service provision in times of crisis. We wish our partners fast recovery and coming back to normal operation as soon as possible. We would also like to thank our clients for their understanding and patience and remind that we have a business continuity plan and will keep them informed of any changes in our service.
