“Hauling critical supplies across North America every day, professional truck drivers are on the front lines of the global COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. James Voorhees, president and CEO of ITI. “It is vital that they know how to protect themselves and others, which is why ITI is offering COVID-19: What Drivers Need To Know free of charge. This information will help stem the spread of the virus and keep drivers safe during this critical time.”

 

COVID-19: What Drivers Need To Know covers the most up-to-date information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the symptoms of the coronavirus, ways to prevent its spread, and what to do if you get sick. It also addresses driver-specific concerns, including:

 

  • Cleaning or avoiding high-touch areas inside and outside the vehicle
  • Important regulatory changes like Hours of Service and CDL expirations
  • Operational concerns like shipper closures
  • Reminders to avoid distracted driving and manage stress in challenging times
  • Lifestyle changes such as reducing contact in driver lounges, break rooms, and at vending machines

Drivers are also advised to check the CDC and FMCSA websites for up-to-date information on the pandemic, and to avoid sensational news and social media sites that could be spreading inaccurate information.

Another importany aspect is getting your body in tune to support a healthy immune system. Get plenty of rest. Sleep that is. Eat healthy. Berries such as blueberries are very high in antioxidants. Nuts such as Brazil nuts are as well. Drink plenty of water. You should drink one ounce of water for every pound of body weight to flush your system. Avoid free radicals such as alcoholic beverages, smoking, and processed sugar.  

This virus has been in the country since before Christmas. And has been ever so slowly been tightening it's grasp.
