We look forward to seeing our toy industry family at Toy Fair and at ASTRA’s Night in New York party, less than a week away. In light of the news regarding the Coronavirus, we are mindful of the proactive precautions Toy Association advises for all attendees. 

Industry Update: What to Know About the Coronavirus, Toys and Toy Fair. They are asking attendees to adhere to the World Health Organization. WHO's suggestions for protecting their health include: 

  • Frequest hand-washing
  • Covering your mouth or nose with a flexed elbow or tissue when coughing and sneezing
  • Maintaining a proper social distance (about three feet)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

In addition, they are working with the Javits Center to ensure an ample supply of sanitizing materials available for public use. Toy Fair has always occurred at the height of flu season so the WHO precautions are the norm. Our Night in New York event on sunday, February 23 will be held at the Paramount Theatre this year. this venue is a significatly larger venue than our last event at Clyde Fraizier's allowing for space to maintain the WHO-recommended social distance. We will also have ample sanitizing materials available for use. 

At this time, there is a US travel ban which bars entry for all non-residents that have been in mainland China in the past 14 days. As of February 10, NY has had no reported cases of coronavirus in New York City or New York State.

We will continue to monitor the situation. We look forward to seeing you in New York.
