Health and Wellness in the Merchant Lounge
With COVID-19 continuing to impact our people, company and economy, we have decided to close the Merchant Lounge and all Shopify Offices worldwide. We don’t know how long this arrangement will last but we’ll be monitoring the situation closely. Check back often for updates.
Please know that we did not take this decision lightly. We hope that by working together we can reduce the risks to our communities.
A person’s risk for this virus is not dependent on race, ethnicity or culture. Rather than acting out of fear, we should respond with knowledge, compassion, and justice while protecting ourselves and one another.
We want to take this opportunity to remind you of preventative measures we encourage everyone to take. COVID-19 is in the family of viruses that cause the common cold, so symptoms and prevention measures are similar.
To help prevent cold and flu:
- Wash hands frequently
- Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth
- Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, using a tissue, sleeve or face mask
- Maintain social distancing - maintain at least 3 feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing
- Get a flu shot (recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older)
