A NOTE ABOUT COVID 19
Staying Connected is More Important Than Ever

As we navigate the current health crisis together, I also wanted to let you know that our company continues to prioritize the safety and well-being of our team members, their families and our customers.
We value the role we play in helping you express, connect and celebrate with the important people in your life. In this unprecedented moment, being connected with each other is more important than ever. While we may be practicing social distancing, staying healthy means not falling into an unhealthy pattern of social isolation. Taking care of our emotional well-being, prioritizing self-care and staying engaged with the important people in your life are among the most critical things we can do right now.
Health & Safety Measures:

Gifts are delivered by one of our reputable carriers including UPS or FedEx. As a measure of social distancing and to minimize any potential risk of exposure for both our carriers and our customers, no contact is necessary for deliveries.
The World Health Organization has provided guidance that the risk of COVID-19 infection from a package that has moved, travelled, or been exposed to different conditions and temperatures is low. We are working closely with our carriers to responsibly manage this evolving situation.
All employees should practice responsible sanitation and hand-washing. Delivery vehicles should be properly ventilated throughout the day and in clean condition Announce arrival by ringing bell or knocking on the door, but practice touchless delivery.

We are monitoring this closely and will be in touch with you if we cannot deliver your gift to this address.
Please be assured that CheesecakeDelivered.Com has robust hygiene, food handling and storage practices for our products that are intended to maintain their integrity and ensure their safe use. In light of COVID-19, not only are we following those robust practices, they are now receiving an even greater focus. Currently, both the FDA and CDC consider the risk of transmission through food to be very low. In fact, the FDA has stated that they are not aware of any reports of transmission of COVID-19 through food, and the CDC has said that there is no evidence of food supporting transmission of COVID-19.
We are in frequent communication with all of our suppliers to confirm they are working in accordance with the federal, state and local food safety laws, as well as recent guidance and precautions issued by the CDC. As a company, we take food safety very seriously and continually monitor to ensure all of our facilities are practicing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's) as defined by the FDA which include, but are not limited to, sanitizing, hand washing/drying, wearing gloves and hair restraints.
Our fulfillment locations follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) as defined by the FDA.
