February 13, 2020 Statement from Spectrum Pharmacy Products
Recent developments regarding the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have created large surges in market demand for many PPE and infection control products. Spectrum has seen a tremendous spike in order volumes for these specific product categories, and we are working to provide product solutions for our customers.
We are in the process of communicating with our manufacturer partners to understand their capacity to keep up with the demand. Some partners have exhausted their inventory and as a course of action have stopped taking on backorders until their production lines catch up with current demand. Others have allocated smaller quantities to try and meet at least some needs. We will continue to work with our partners in order to meet current demands; however, longer lead times, partially filled orders or even cancellations may occur.
Impacted Categories: N95 masks, surgical masks, regular masks, respirators, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, isolation gowns, gloves, and other infection control categories.
Please reach out and work with your Spectrum sales rep for assistance with product availability. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
