As a result, Gojo said it would shift its operations into the next phase of pandemic response to insure that Purell hand hygiene and surface products support critical infrastructure including healthcare, first responders, grocery stores, the U.S. Military, and certain government facilities.
"Following the President’s directives, Gojo is shifting into the next phase of our pandemic response efforts and working closely with our distributor partners to help ensure products are available at the front lines of this public emergency," explained Samantha Williams, corporate communications senior director, Gojo. "During the week ending on March 28, 2020, Gojo will only ship product intended for critical prioritized end-users, as determined by the federal government. We will constantly evaluate our capacity against urgent demand and will make products available for other end-users as we are able. We care deeply about protecting public health and about getting our products to all of the places and people where they are needed; we are being called upon during this difficult time to help safeguard those working so hard on the front lines to keep us all healthy and safe, and we are working with our distributor partners to rise to this challenge."
