Coronavirus Update - March 22nd

Hi Shedo Family,

This situation with COVID-19 keeps getting more and more surreal! I certainly can’t recall a more uncertain time with so many unknowns.

With all of this unpredictability, I want to be 100% transparent with what is going on in our business.  We are based in the Kansas City area, which yesterday fell under Stay-At-Home orders starting Tuesday.

Here is what we are keeping an eye on so far:

1. We may at some point lose the ability to ship orders placed on our websites. 

Most of the Kansas City metro has been issued Stay-At-Home orders starting Tuesday 3/23 for the next 30 days (at least for now).  For now, we are still able to ship orders from our fulfillment center.  Our fulfillment folks are extremely dedicated to getting you your orders and will keep doing what they can, but our ability to do so may change at any point. We will make the necessary changes on our website and notify anyone whose order we are unable to fulfill as soon as we know.

2. If you are wanting UPF 50+ clothing for the Spring and Summer, now is the time!

We are feeling the uncertainty just like you.  We are not sure how long we will be open to ship so… if you plan to play outside while on quarantine and want sun protection now is the time.  Our team is following closely and complying with all the regulations, and we don’t want to leave you hanging when the weather does turn warm.  


Staying at home has not been the easiest for me while pregnant with our 3rd baby boy, but we’re making the best of it!  I’ve been putting more focus on ways our family can grow together while trying to keep as much normalcy in our lives. We try to get the boys out for a walk or bike ride at least twice a day and then run around with our pup in the backyard.  

Whether you are in self-quarantine or mandated lockdown, it is so important for your mental and physical health to get fresh air.  Sun protection is still vital. So, please please get that fresh air, but don’t forget your sun hat and sunscreen.

We are thinking of all of you, stay safe and healthy.  

Sending all my love.
