COVID-19 continues to have a significant impact, not only on our day-to-day lives, but also on the global supply chain and on factory capacity relating to disposable hand protection. Due to the situation, all customers ordering from our domestic warehouses are being held to strict allocation programs. Effective immediately, Sempermed will have allocation changes for our StarMed Latex (SM) and SemperCare Latex (SCLT) brands. As mentioned in last month’s Covid Crisis Communication, StarMed Latex (SM) is going to be on a long term backorder. Moving forward we will be able to offer a comparable exam latex in our SemperCare Latex (SCLT).
