COVID-19 (a.k.a. ``coronavirus``)

The latest information from Top Notch regarding COVID-19

(last updated: 3/17/2020)

We are here for you.

It sounds silly to think that a violin shop would need to say something like that – but as a small business owner, I know what it’s like to rely on suppliers to ensure my business functions properly. I know that any disruption to that supply chain can drastically affect our ability to take care of our clients, associates, and their families.

We are closely monitoring the news, government mandates, and reports coming from the CDC and are taking the necessary steps to prepare and respond appropriately.

  • We are actively encouraging any associate to stay home until cleared by a doctor if they are not feeling well (any cold or flu symptoms). Out of respect for shop staff and other clients, we would asked the same of our clientele.
  • Additionally, we are:
    • We are wiping down the instrument inventory daily
    • Disinfecting common surfaces routinely through out the day
    • Asking clients to thoroughly wash & dry their hands before handling instruments
    • Refraining from close contact with others (ie, shaking hands, fist bumps, hugs, high fives, etc..)

What you can do at home:

  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before playing your instrument. If using hand sanitizer, KEEP HAND SANITIZER AWAY from your instrument. Hand sanitizer’s main ingredient is alcohol. If this gets on your instrument, it can cause very costly damage to the varnish.
  • Keep your instrument wiped down with a clean, dry cloth daily.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

We will remain open as long as it is safe to do so.We all play a part in keeping not only ourselves, but those around us, healthy!

Respectfully Yours,

The Top Notch Team
