COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update
Hello dear customers and friends.
As the situation around the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, I wanted to take a minute to let you know what is happening at Holy Rocks.
Safety Precautions: As you may know, Holy Rocks is run out of a home studio in Decorah IA. The studio space is a closed-off, separate space from the rest of the house. It is not open to the public and I (Karn) am the only person working in the studio. Myself and my family have been taking many precautions since mid-March. No one in my family has tested positive nor had symptoms of illness. If at any point someone develops symptoms, the Holy Rocks website and all online sales will immediately pause for as long as necessary. All beads or supplies purchased for use in Holy Rocks products during this time are arriving via mail and are then sequestered for multiple days. I am washing everything in soap and water upon opening. Solid hand-washing techniques are used by everyone in the household. This includes when I enter my studio and on a regular basis while I work. I am doing everything I can to ensure safe handling of my products, so you can feel confident and safe when you make a purchase. All orders are shipped in packaging that has cardboard / paper exteriors (not plastic).
Whether you buy from Holy Rocks right now or not, I encourage you to do what you can to help small businesses around you. I know many stores, restaurants, salons, etc. are restricted or seeing less customers than normal. Please take time to see if they have a website. Buy online now or buy a gift card to use at a later date. Send your hairdresser an online cash gift that equals what you would be paying them in the salon. Order food for curbside pickup or delivery if you feel you can do so safely. Check your chamber of commerce website to see if there are other ways to support your local businesses. Our communities need us and we need each other. ♥
Most important: Take care of yourself, take care of others. Stay home. Be well. Keep the whole world in your prayers. Send out good vibes and be open to prayers and good vibes coming your way. So much love to you all!
