Apologies, as I had no idea which was the proper sub-forum for this. I'm sure our mods will kindly put this thread in the right place. But I did search every sub-forum and did not find a thread on this. But I'm sure it's on almost everyone's minds. With the current virus activity going on around the world, as well as the travel bans, I am wondering if, and how, kava might be affected. Again, not just directly from the virus itself, potentially causing possible contamination with the product (or maybe not at all ! ) But also, and perhaps more likely than the above, perhaps shipping may be interrupted, delayed, or halted, due to the economic measures, travel bans/restrictions, etc. Could there be any issue with ordering, shipping, and receiving it ? I live in the U.S., so my first question, would be how it applies to us. When travel is banned from certain countries, does that affect shipment of certain cargo ? I know that some "cargo" is actually shipped on "passenger planes". But as far as kava, does that get shipped separately on cargo planes/ships ? And if so, would the cargo face a lot more scrutiny, to make sure objects aren't carrying the virus ?
