Flower Duet is close­ly mon­i­tor­ing all alerts regard­ing cur­rent out­break of the Nov­el Coro­n­avirus (COVID-19).

See updat­ed Safer at Home Order issued by the Coun­ty of Los Ange­les Depart­ment of Pub­lic Health.

  • Stay Home
  • When out get­ting gro­ceries or exer­cise, keep 6‑foot perime­ter dis­tance from others.
  • Keep touch­points clean – these are places that many peo­ple touch; such as door han­dles, coun­ters, phones, key­boards, remote con­trols, etc.
  • Wash your hands – wash many times dur­ing the day, for at least 20 sec­onds. If you can’t wash your hands, use hand sanitizer.
  • Main­tain good per­son­al hygiene and avoid touch­ing your face.
  • Avoid con­tact with peo­ple who are sick or if you feel sick stay home. Also, con­sid­er reduc­ing unnec­es­sary close con­tact with oth­ers by avoid­ing hand­shakes or hugs.

Is Coun­ty staff trained to deal with Nov­el Coro­n­avirus (COVID-19)?

Yes. The Coun­ty’s emer­gency per­son­nel are trained and capa­ble to respond to any emerg­ing dis­ease, includ­ing the Nov­el Coro­n­avirus, and imple­ment appro­pri­ate health­care protocols.

Will Flower Duet con­tin­ue to oper­ate normally?

Flower Duet can­celled class­es and tours through April 30, 2020 as per guide­lines from the Cal­i­for­nia Pub­lic Health Depart­ment issued on March 12, 2020. We held vir­tu­al class­es all month and are offer­ing out­door class­es weath­er per­mit­ting with lim­it­ed size and dis­tanc­ing for Octo­ber — December.

Flower Duet is mon­i­tor­ing the Health Depart­ment guidelines.

TOURS: For all upcom­ing sched­uled tours of the LA Flower Mar­ket, these are on hold.

WORKSHOPS: For May-Sep­tem­ber Flo­ral Work­shops, Flower Duet held these class­es vir­tu­al­ly through video con­fer­enc­ing soft­ware on the Inter­net. Stu­dents will be able to con­nect through a mobile device like a phone or an iPad or a Chrome­book or from a desk­top com­put­er. A video cam­era option on the stu­dent side will be help­ful so that we can offer feed­back on the flo­ral design each stu­dent cre­ates.  Meet­ing invi­ta­tions with details on how stu­dents will get flow­ers, vas­es, flo­ral cut­ters, and log­ging into the class will be sent out once the stu­dent has made a reser­va­tion for the class. Flow­ers will be includ­ed for these class­es. For future class­es, we will reeval­u­ate as per LA Coun­ty #saferath­ome guide­lines. We are offer­ing an option to come and take a class out­side with lim­it­ed capac­i­ties and safe social distancing.

What is Flower Duet doing dif­fer­ent­ly in its stu­dio to help pre­vent the spread of Coronavirus?

While we are tak­ing flower orders and meet­ing via email or phone calls and Zoom con­fer­ence. We are wip­ing down tables, fre­quent­ly touched sur­faces and the vas­es we use for deliv­er­ies with san­i­tiz­ing wipes more often than we nor­mal­ly would do. Any­one with symp­toms of ill­ness will not be per­mit­ted to enter the studio.

What if I have an event booked with Flower Duet in the next few months?

If you have an event booked with Flower Duet and have con­cerns about post­pon­ing or can­celling, please con­tact us direct­ly at 310–792-4868 or email Casey at casey@flowerduet.com.

Can I still book events with Flower Duet for the future?

Yes! Flower Duet is tak­ing future book­ing inquiries. We are offer­ing our Free Wed­ding Quotes, cor­po­rate event orders for future dates,  hold­ing online flo­ral design class­es and plan­ning future events with clients. We can meet vir­tu­al­ly and chat on the phone, too.

What can I do to pre­vent con­tract­ing the Nov­el Coro­n­avirus or any oth­er viruses?

The best way to stay healthy is eat­ing well and prac­tic­ing good hygiene such as fre­quent­ly wash­ing your hands and uti­liz­ing hand san­i­tiz­er, keep­ing a dis­tance between any­one who is cough­ing or sneez­ing, avoid­ing touch­ing the face and stay­ing home if you feel unwell.

What should I do if I have reser­va­tions for a class at Flower Duet but I feel ill and need to stay at home?

Do I need to wear a face­mask in public?
