Conney Safety's Statement on Coronavirus


During these challenging and unprecedented times, your Conney Safety team is here for you. Our goal is to support our customers to the best of our ability, while simultaneously protecting the safety and health of our employees and our community.

Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the safety industry is experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other products. Increased demand for coronavirus-related items* along with supply chain disruptions for items manufactured in China has severely limited product supply. Our goal is to fulfill all of our customer orders, but due to the current challenges, we will prioritize customers with an existing purchase history of that item before fulfilling orders for new customers. All orders of coronavirus-related items will be non-cancellable, non-returnable, and non-refundable.

*Coronavirus-related PPE items include:

  • Respirators and masks of all types
  • Disposable gloves
  • Disposable protective clothing
  • Goggles
  • Hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes
  • More items may be added to this list over time

Coronavirus-related PPE may appear to be out of stock on conney.com. You can get information and place orders on available stock, alternative items, by calling our Customer Service department at 800.356.9100 or emailing salesservice@conney.com.

We have limited availability on disposable nitrile gloves, respirators (disposable and silicone), anti-bacterial handwash, and disposable and non-disposable protective clothing. A reminder: orders for workers in prioritized customer segments will be filled first.
The Conney Safety showroom is not currently open to the public, but you can still pick up orders from 8 AM to noon Monday-Friday. Place pick-up orders by calling 1-800-356-9100, ordering online at conney.com, or by emailing showroom@conney.com. We call you when your order is ready to schedule a pick up time.

Please note that until further notice, we cannot process customer returns, refunds, cancellations, and repairs or service requests for customer-used product.

About 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCov)


2019 Novel Coronavirus is part of a large family of respiratory viruses common in a variety of animal species, including camels, cattle, cats and bats. In rare instances, animals can infect humans, who then spread the infection from person-to-person. This was also the case with MERS and SARS.


Chinese health officials have reported thousands of coronavirus infections since it was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. The virus spreading from person-to-person in many parts of China and outside of China. The United States reported the first confirmed instance of person-to-person spread on January 30, 2020. There is mounting evidence of widening transmission in the US and over a hundred other countries.
Person-to-person spread of the virus occurs mainly through coughs and sneezes—similar to influenza. It is unclear whether a person can get coronavirus by touching contaminated surfaces or objects, and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.
Coronavirus patients report a mild to severe respiratory illness, along with the following symptoms:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
After exposure, symptoms may appear as early as two days later, and last as long as 14 days. Symptoms may not appear immediately, so it is important to be mindful of spread, even for those of us who may not believe we have contracted the virus. If you have been traveled within the past two weeks, been in contact with someone who has exhibited symptoms, or have developed symptoms yourself, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
To prevent and reduce coronavirus transmission, Conney Safety, OSHA, the CDC, and the National Safety Council urge you to take these preventive steps—especially if you work in healthcare, international travel or waste management.

Stay informed. The CDC updates its website daily with the latest coronavirus transmission and prevention information.

Protect Your Workers



    • If you are well, there is no need to wear a facemask for protection.
    • Do wear a facemask if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms (fever, cough, and difficulty breathing). This will help protect others from infection.
    • Health workers and those caring for people in close settings (such as in-home care or in a health care facility) should also wear facemasks
OSHA is recommending qualitative fit testing for N95 respirators. Qualitative fit testing is a pass/fail test to assess respirator fit, relying on the individual’s sensory detection of a test agent. No special testing equipment is needed. Conduct a fit test every time a new model, brand, or size is worn. Read the more detailed qualitative fit testing protocol by viewing OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 Appendix A.
  • Remove masks, gloves, protective clothing and goggles with care to avoid contamination of the wearer and surrounding area.
  • Wash hands immediately after removing masks, gloves, protective clothing and goggles.
  • Consider putting a wipeable cover on computer keyboards, mice, telephones and other electronics.
  • Remind workers wash hands immediately at these key times:
    • After blowing one’s nose, coughing, or sneezing
    • After using the restroom
    • Before eating or preparing food
  • If you are well, there is no need to wear a facemask. But do wear a facemask if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, or are a health worker caring for people in close settings.
When cleaning, disinfecting workspaces and handling trash, wear disposable gloves. For more guidance, please read the CDC’s detailed disinfection guide.

Here are the essentials:
  • Keep the surface wet for several minutes to ensure total disinfection.
  • Ensure good ventilation.
  • Most EPA-registered household disinfectants and disinfecting wipes should kill coronavirus. If you are out of disinfectant, you can use the following:
    • Diluted bleach solution (for surfaces that won’t bleach out): 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water OR 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
    • Never mix bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser
  • For soft surfaces (drapes, upholstered furniture, carpet and rugs), spray with an alcohol solution with at least 70% alcohol.
  • isinfect common areas, shared electronic equipment. Focus on high-touch items (door handles, faucets, toilet flush handles, light switches, desktops, computer keyboards, computer mice, phones, ATM machines, remotes, vending machines, stair handrails and more.
  • D
  • Educate all workers on virus hotspots (like high-touch areas), as well as disinfecting protocol. Training should include PPE best practices: when PPE is needed, what’s needed for specific tasks, proper fit and takeoff, and proper disposal.
