Sample COVID-19 Help Poster:
If you need help and know or suspect you have been infected with COVID-19, please call us at PHONE NUMBER instead of entering the building or approaching others in the parking lot. Please help us keep other professional drivers and our team members from getting sick; if you know or suspect that you have the coronavirus, please maintain a safe distance from others at all times.
If you work for a company, please contact your employer. We’ve been advised by multiple trucking companies that if a driver is too sick to drive home or to the nearest terminal, the company will make arrangements for the driver to be transported to a hospital or lodging.
If you are an owner/operator, please call us at PHONE NUMBER so we can help you get home or seek medical help. If you are in distress with the coronavirus or any other ailment, our team members will call an ambulance to transport you to a local emergency room.
We are grateful to you and all of the drivers who are working hard to deliver food and medical supplies and equipment, and are proud to serve professional drivers and do our part to ensure that our country can continue to fight COVID-19.
