Given the heightened nature of the Coronavirus, we are assessing estate sale procedures to decide how best to protect our customers and our dedicated staff.
As much as possible, the focus at Catherine’s Estate sales will continue to be “business as usual”, with added measures to minimize this serious health risk. Estate sales will be conducted as normal, but we will limit entry to no more than 25 persons at one time. Although not banned, instead of hugs and handshakes we encourage social distancing, elbow bumps, and even the traditional Vulcan greeting of “live long and prosper.” Hand sanitizers will be available at the door and in each room. We will work to separate the POS checkout station to relieve the congestion we can have there, and will regularly wipe down the credit card and cash station.
Following the public health recommendations of the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization we will be posting this in our rest rooms:
The Coronavirus is NOT for sale at Catherine’s Estates!
We are increasing the frequency of wiping down our surfaces, here’s how you can help!
- Hum “Happy Birthday” twice as you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Sneeze and cough into your elbow.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
- Remember, laughter is the best medicine.
If you are sick, we wish you a speedy recovery and that you stay at home. But don’t feel you have to miss out. You can always call if you want to buy an estate sale item over the phone. Catherine’s Estates remains open for business daily by appointment and during scheduled estate sale and appraisal events. At present, appraisals will continue as scheduled. However, we will continue to monitor the situation and will announce any changes as we need to make them.
Ciao – Here’s hoping we may all go back to Italy soon!
