Statement Regarding the Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19)


The Safety of Our Customers and Employees is Top Priority

In the response to the elevated risks of the coronavirus (COVID-19), The Grit is monitoring the situation and following all current guidelines provided by the World Health Organisation and Australian Government.

The safety of our customers and employees during this time is paramount.


What Measures Are We Implementing?

In our warehouse, we are taking extra precautions to ensure that customers and employees are protected. These include:

  1. Increased hand washing throughout the day
  2. Social distancing
  3. Staff members have been instructed to stay at home if they feel ill or have come in to contact with someone that has tested positive to COVID-19


Is Coronavirus Affecting Shipments?

We are experiencing supply chain disruptions only for a limited number of products. Those products that are affected will display the following message on individual product pages:

Backorder items affected by coronavirus

All other products that don’t feature this note are in stock and will be shipped as normal.
