Masks Now Required at All Natrol Facilities

Dear Valued Distributors,

Natrol Face Masks Required BlogFirst, Natrol wishes everyone stay healthy in these difficult and unprecedented times, and that you take the maximum protections to keep your family and loved ones safe.

The COVID-19 worldwide situation is going to be with us for a long time, so we need to understand the implications, and make preventative behavioral changes now to protect ourselves.

In the short term, it will change the way we interact in public, socially with friends, at school, religious and other large gatherings in close proximity, how we travel, and at work. Because there is no vaccine and no specific proven treatments or cure, it is very important to limit the spread by practicing the following:

  • Extreme hygiene, washing hands frequently, disinfecting objects touched frequently, not touching the face/nose/eyes with unwashed hands
  • Social distancing of at least 6 feet/2 meters in most situation, and 12 feet/4 meters when exercising with others nearby
  • Staying in shelter as much as possible, in order to not spread COVID-19 if you have it, or not get it from others who do not show symptoms but can spread it
  • Wear a mask or other face covering when outside the house or with others!

Therefore, in addition to the first three practices, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, Natrol has issued masks to all employees. All employees are now required to wear masks at all times when in our facilities.

Dear Valued Distributors,

On 3/19/20, the state of California issued the “Safer-at-Home” order in response to the continuing developments of the COVID-19 pandemic. Excluded from this order are Essential Workforce businesses. Natrol LLC is considered an Essential Workforce business, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security and CISA.

Prior to the coronavirus outbreak in Europe, we increased our safety stocks of raw materials and are actively communicating with our suppliers to determine supply risks based on origins and market availability. Further, we have ramped up production of our high demand products and have doubled our safety stock levels to ensure continued flow of goods with “best in class” service levels. More…

What do I need to know about COVID-19?

As a health and wellness organization, Natrol is keenly concerned about the recent worldwide outbreak of a novel strain of the coronavirus now detected in more than 100 locations internationally. The coronavirus is a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.
This new virus strain was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has been named “SARS-CoV-2.” The disease it’s causing is abbreviated “COVID-19”, short for Coronavirus Disease 2019. More about Coronavirus.

How does it spread?
Currently, the World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting that COVID-19 is quite contagious. Although this type of coronavirus originates from bats, it quickly begins spreading from person to person when someone coughs or exhales moisture onto nearby surfaces, objects or directly onto another person. And then another person touches their face in some manner or inhales the expulsion directly. Ongoing research by the WHO will continue to expose any new developments regarding the transmittal of the disease. Current Q&A on COVID-19.

What is the incubation period?
The U.S.’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes at this time that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Latest COVID-19 alerts.

What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • Fever
  • Fatique
  • Dry Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Less common symptoms are:

  • Aches and pains
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea
  • Pneumonia

How do I protect myself, friends and family?

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain at least 3 feet (1 meter) between yourself and anyone coughing or sneezing.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, or wash them with soap and water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the used tissue immediately.
  • Stay home if you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing; and seek medical attention immediately.
  • Stay informed. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority and your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

How Soap Works

What is the treatment for COVID-19?
Currently there is no vaccine or antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID-2019. Possible vaccines are under investigation. If you suspect you have COVID-19, seek medical treatment immediately to help relieve the symptoms. The good news is most patients recover thanks to supportive care.

As of 3/10/2020, according to the World Health Organization, there had been 113,702 confirmed cases of COVID-19 globally and 4,012 deaths. Of those cases, here is the fatality rate by age:

Natrol Coronovirus Death rate by age
*Death rate = number of deaths/number of cases, or the probability of dying if infected by the virus.

More stats on Age, Sex and Existing Conditions of COVID-19 cases.

Where have COVID-19 cases been reported?
The World Health Organization and the U.S. CDC are publishing updated global maps and listing the locations of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the states.
