While we all can’t stop living our every day lives of trucking, which means time spent on the road at truck stops and ports, we can take extra precaution to protect ourselves from Coronavirus. Take Precautions Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Both ports and truck stops are full of busy people who carry germs and contagious illnesses so right now doing a few things extra or different will make an impact.

Take these additional precautions and follow these preventative tips to protect yourself from coming in contact with the virus while out on the road trucking.

  • Wear rubber gloves
  • Carry masks and consider wearing them at ports
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Use alcohol based hand washing products such as GermX
  • Where gloves or immediately wash your hands after pumping fuel (you don’t know who the last person was who used the pump)
  • Lysol is better than Clorox – keep these wipes in the truck with you
  • Wipe steering wheels often
  • Wear gloves when tarping or chaining loads, especially any that contain anything imported

Here are more tips from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
