Given that our drivers are in physical contact with customers and suppliers everyday — often in entirely different cities and states – there is a heightened potential for both parties to share, pass, or contract COVID-19. As a result, we strongly recommend the following actions:
WEAR A MASK: Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
DO NOT SHAKE HANDS: It may feel awkward rejecting a customary handshake but for everyone’s safety, please avoid it. Medical professionals say shaking hands is the easiest way to spread the virus.
DISTANCE YOURSELF: Put distance between yourself and our driver at the pickup or delivery location to protect both parties’ health.
PRACTICE PATIENCE: If either party faces extenuating circumstances related to the virus, show some understanding. We are all in this together.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that the virus is thought to spread from people who are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet) via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes — which can land on and be inhaled by people nearby. The CDC says they are still learning exactly how the virus spreads, the severity the illness can cause, and to what extend it may spread in the U.S.
