Dear Kelly Paper Customer:

Following up on our communication yesterday, we want to assure you that Kelly Paper will continue to serve you as an Essential Business as defined by the Department of Homeland Security and the new California “Safer at Home” order. Our qualification falls under the following definitions:

  • Workers who support the manufacture and distribution of forest products, including, but not limited to timber, paper, and other wood products
  • Manufacturers and distributors (to include service centers and related operations) of packaging materials, pallets, crates, containers, and other supplies needed to support manufacturing, packaging staging and distribution operations
  • Manufacturers, technicians, logistics and warehouse operators, and distributors of medical equipment, personal protective equipment (PPE), medical gases, pharmaceuticals, blood and blood products, vaccines, testing materials, laboratory supplies, cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting or sterilization supplies, and tissue and paper towel products.

As a designated Essential Business, we have been given the go ahead to continue store operations and deliveries to customers. Please be assured that our store employees and drivers will continue to practice strict adherence to health and safety protocols. This includes social distancing and washing hands or using a hand sanitizer after all interactions and after all deliveries. We are proud to contribute in this way, including shipping and delivering goods considered essential.

As we continue to navigate these challenging times together, we thank you for your continued support.

Please stay safe,
