You’ve no doubt heard about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in China, specifically the Hubei province. While there are no factories in the Lumi network within the Hubei province, the outbreak could soon prompt factory shutdowns in neighboring provinces that may cause delays.

​As of this writing, no lead times have been affected by the outbreak, but should shutdowns continue, you may see delays in order lead times, preproduction sample lead times, and quoting from factories in the these areas. 

Before the outbreak, we forecasted shutdowns for Lunar New Year throughout early February. We are keeping in close contact with manufacturers in China and will update you should shutdowns be extended past those dates.
