CDC WARNS OF Coronavirus disruption
February 25th, 2020
Yelm WA – With the news that the Coronavirus will most probably be coming to the USA. And the fact that the virus can last on food packaging for 9 days, the Yelm Food Coop wants to inform the people of Yelm that we will not be buying anything from China until the outbreak is over. The very few products that we do have from China have been in the store for a while and wouldn’t be contaminated.
We are fortunate that most of our products are either local or from safe sources. We have new supplies of Vitamin C and Elderberry products arriving Tuesday. We would like to remind people that the best way to combat illness it to keep your immune system strong, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh air and plenty of sleep.
