With state and local governments actively trying to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are resorting to classifying businesses as either essential or non-essential for emergency closure orders. In some states, firearms businesses have been labeled as non-essential and ordered closed. A local Kansas City, Kansas Order has all of CZ-USA closed until at least April 23, 2020. The company expects production and shipment delays to be inevitable.

CZ-USA Closed – All Facilities Shutdown Due To COVID-19 Emergency Order
For Immediate Release: CZ-USA Coronavirus Statement
Kansas City, KS (March 24, 2020) – Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many jurisdictions throughout the United States and the world are experiencing government restrictions limiting activity to varying degrees.
CZ-USA operations are subject to an Emergency Order from our local government which forces us to close our facilities in Kansas City, Kansas until at least April 23rd. Likewise, our Dan Wesson Firearms facility in Norwich, NY was closed under similar circumstances late last week due to an order from the state of New York.
For the next 30 days, production and shipment delays are inevitable. We apologize for the inconvenience we know this will cause — we hold our nation’s Second Amendment rights to be sacred and are very concerned about the impact that emergency orders will have on our customers. We will work diligently to deliver products as soon as legally possible, while maintaining social responsibility and compliance with government orders.
Since 1997, CZ-USA has given American shooters and hunters the best firearms the Czech Republic has to offer. In 2019, we completed yet another milestone by producing CZ firearms here in the United States at CZ-USA’s Kansas City, Kansas, facility. With our ever-increasing production capabilities stateside, CZ-USA will continue to improve, innovate, and add to the CZ-USA line-up of high-quality, affordable handguns, rifles, shotguns, and suppressors, plus custom-quality handguns from Dan Wesson.
