Just a reminder that Coffee News reached out to Infectious Disease Specialist - Dr. Abdu Sharkawy to get his opinion on printing. Here’s what he had to say about Coffee News:
“My honest opinion is that the risk of transmission of this virus via paper is effectively between nil and negligible. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to resume full printing operations if you deem it in the best interest of your business. With basic hand hygiene, the risk of acquiring Covid-19 via handling a contaminated paper is almost non-existent. Have a wonderful day and keep spreading good energy across Vancouver Island”. Best wishes... Dr Sharkawy
Please Note: The printed version of Coffee News is currently available in the Parksville/Qualicum, Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Chemainus, Duncan and Victoria regions of Vancouver Island. More areas coming soon.
