What qualifies as an essential order?

Unsure if your order qualifies as essential? Please see the information below.

Your order qualifies as essential if you are working on direct efforts to combat the COVID-19 outbreak. This can mean a number of things, as the struggle to contain and fight COVID-19, and treat those effected, are pervasive. Likely this means, your order:

  • Contains electronics, tools, or materials that will be used to manufacture PPE, or other medical supplies, for healthcare providers or government agencies working specifically to combat COVID-19
  • Is shipping directly to a doctor or medical/healthcare professional
  • Is shipping directly to an educator who is working to set up online learning for their classroom due to COVID-19 related school closures
  • Contains microelectronics/semi-conductors that will be used in essential manufacturing or research & development (e.g. food, health/ventilator, medical, safety, defense production)
