  9. Tow Operators and Truckers may be some of the least to fully understand that they are not often the ones at risk. Unless they have had a medical issue that has effected their immune systems they can often be a carrier. They could potentially take this virus back home to their family member who has a lowered immune system. That could be someone who has a medical issue or an older family member. They say that age 60 plus are at a high risk and those 80 plus are at the highest risk. Why chance it as so many are down playing the situation. Yes, I believe there is quite a bit of hype. But, why take the chance? What is that they used to say "An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure."
  10. I am going out on a limb and suggest All Motor Clubs seriously consider restricting ridership to protect their service providers. This would only be for the next 30 days. The small space inside the cab of a Tow Truck increases the odds of exposure. The member/customer would be advised to find alternative transportation. Riding with the Tow Truck Operator should always be a Privilege not a Right. Updated: I have already had one Motor Club contact me and say they are on top of this one. They have sent out information to providers. However they are not ready to issue an industry press release at this time. If a Motor Club has sent you anything pertaining to recommendations and procedures for dealing with potential risk please copy that to me. Thanks You will find several of these images online. To my knowledge these have not come from AAA.

  13. Show Update - 3/12/2020 It is with a heavy heart and deep regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Mid-America Trucking Show scheduled for March 26-28 in Louisville, KY. This is a decision we did not make lightly, but in consultation with our exhibitors, attendees, supporters, and partners, including Kentucky Venues, Louisville Tourism, Kentucky Governor’s Office, and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Families Services. In light of today’s extraordinary circumstances and with an abundance of caution, this decision has been made with the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, employees, and show partners in mind. MATS has a proud tradition as the largest and most well-attended show in heavy-duty trucking. We will return stronger than ever in 2021 and will focus on an unforgettable 50th-anniversary event – March 25-27, 2021 in Louisville, KY. Sincerely, MATS Show Management
  14. "I got a flu shot and immediately came down with flu-like illness that took a week to depart." I have never taken a Flu Shot because nearly everyone I know that takes the Flu Shot general get sick anyway. Now, with that said when a Flu Shot specifically designed and formulated for this Virus. I will take it just as I do a tetanus shot regularly, every tow operator should get this shot. That may be a question that should be asked as one would wonder if this important shot may be neglected these days.

  16. Does your company have a barrier between customers and office staff?
  17. From OSHA's recommendations: Where, how, and to what sources of SARS-CoV-2 might workers be exposed, including:{The general public, customers, and coworkers; and{Sick individuals or those at particularly high risk of infection (e.g., international travelers who have visited locations with widespread sustained (ongoing) COVID-19 transmission, healthcare workers who have had unprotected exposures to people known to have, or suspected of having, COVID-19) Promote frequent and thorough hand washing, including by providing workers, customers, and worksite visitors with a place to wash their hands. If soap and running water are not immediately available, provide alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60% alcohol. These are going to be difficult for the majority of towing companies in the industry: Encourage workers to stay home if they are sick. Encourage respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes. Provide customers and the public with tissues and trash receptacles. Discourage workers from using other workers’ phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment, when possible. I would encourage all tow companies to up their game in regards to this recommendation. Maintain regular housekeeping practices, including routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, equipment, and other elements of the work environment. When choosing cleaning chemicals, employers should consult information on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant labels with claims against emerging viral pathogens. Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expectedto be effective against SARS-CoV-2 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use of all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, PPE).
