The Professional Sports Authenticator card grading company is slowly reopening its California authentication and grading operations on a limited basis effective immediately, PSA announced Wednesday.
PSA announced on March 20 it was temporarily shutting down due to the state’s mandate that all nonessential workers remain at home to combat the spread of coronavirus.
“PSA is slowly reopening its California operation, bringing back a limited crew of employees,” President Steve Sloan said.
“That said, safety is our top priority. We have implemented a number of health and safety measures, including changing the configuration of our workstations and limiting the number of employees that may be onsite at any time in order to maintain social distancing. We are also regularly sanitizing our offices and adopting other health and safety protocols.
“During this time, while you may see some order movement, please be patient as we are still not back to full capacity and therefore service levels remain limited. Please note that we are able to accept orders at Economy service and higher, but are not able to currently accept Bulk orders. PSA autograph and memorabilia authentication services are accepting orders in California only. PSA’s New Jersey office remains closed.
“We know things are slow for everybody right now, but we will survive this pandemic and hopefully be back to full capacity soon. This is a small step in the right direction towards that goal.”
