A customer questioned us today regarding driver teams wearing masks. This is not recommended by the CDC unless a person is already sick. If that were the case, the team member would not be on the job site. Please share the following information from the CDC with any relocating employee that may ask you this question.
We will do all we can to ensure families are safe and comfortable with the procedures we are following.
Recommendations from CDC regarding when to wear a mask:
If you are sick:
- You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.
- If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
- Learn what to do if you are sick.
If you are NOT sick:
- You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask).
- Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers
