SHOP RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS
We are working closely with our vendor partners to maintain a strong supply chain. This situation has created unprecedented demand for a large number of products, and we are working closely with all vendors to maximize availability of the items you need to run your business and keep your employees and customers safe. We will continue to actively monitor this situation over the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
High-touch surfaces are surfaces that are handled frequently throughout the day, and by numerous people. These areas include doorknobs, light switches, phones, sink faucets, armchairs, fridge handles, etc. These surfaces can become contaminated by direct contact with bodily fluids or through indirect contact with other contaminated objects, such as inadequately cleaned rags and sponges or improperly washed hands. Pathogens can stay on surfaces if they are not properly disinfected.
For example, hepatitis A and Rotavirus can survive up to one month on hard, non-porous surfaces, while noroviruses can survive up to 42 days on the same type of surfaces. High-touch surfaces have been shown to play a role in the transmission of pathogens both directly (surface-to-mouth contact) and indirectly (contamination of hands, then subsequent hand-to-mouth contact).
Disinfection vs. Sanitization
When decontaminating surfaces, it is important to understand there are differences between disinfectants and sanitizers.
Disinfectants are used on hard inanimate surfaces and objects in order to destroy or irreversibly inactivate infectious fungi, bacteria, and viruses that are listed on the label.
Sanitizers are used to reduce, but not necessarily eliminate, bacteria and fungi from an inanimate surface to levels considered acceptable as determined by public health codes and regulations. Generally, sanitizers are used on food-contact surfaces and disinfectants on all other hard surfaces. Fabric and carpet can only be sanitized.
Our priority is to keep everyone—our customers and employees—safe as we comply with guidelines from the CDC and health officials.
Here are the latest updates on what Jon-Don is doing:

ORDER 24/7 AT WWW.JONDON.COM
You can order 24/7 at jondon.com. However, due to the high demand created by the coronavirus outbreak, there is a national shortage on many of our regular stocked items. If the product you’re ordering is on backorder, it will be filled in the order it was received once the item is back in stock.
CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY POSTPONED
With the call for gatherings of more than 10 people to be canceled, we are—rightfully—postponing all Customer Appreciation Day events until further notice. We look forward to rescheduling these events in the near future.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR IN-PERSON SEMINARS
To protect the health and safety of students, instructors, employees, and customers, Jon-Don has implemented the following safety protocols. All students and staff are expected to adhere to these guidelines throughout the duration of the event.
- Mask Requirements. Jon-Don follows the guidance of the CDC. As of June 3rd, 2021, Jon-Don will no longer require fully vaccinated employees, customers, or vendors to wear face coverings in our facilities.
The CDC's guidelines for a fully vaccinated individual are as follows:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.
If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, you are still required to wear a mask while in common areas of our facilities.
- Students and staff should maintain a 6-foot social distance as much as possible.
- Frequent hand washing and hand sanitization is encouraged. Hand sanitizer will be available for students to use in the seminar area.
- Individually boxed lunches will be provided.
- Any individual exhibiting flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, body aches, difficulty breathing, headache, etc.) will not be permitted to attend the class.
- An EPA List N disinfectant will be applied to desks, table tops, and other high-touch surfaces throughout the day.
