Mask Mandate Reaches Truck Stops

One week from today another industry will take part in the efforts to contain the coronavirus. Yesterday, Love’s Travel Stops announced starting July 29th all 520 of their locations are requiring customers to wear face masks before entering their stores. Love’s joins the growing list of other retailers who have implemented a mask policy. Love’s President Shane Wharton states, “We are joining other retailers by implementing a face-covering policy for customers, and will continue to follow the guidance of health officials and adjust our practices to help keep our customers and team members safe.”

The transportation industry as a whole is more at risk due to the requirements of the job. With the recent uptick in cases of the coronavirus, this move by Love’s could spark a change amongst other large truck/gas station chains. One way the American Trucking Association has supported the trucking industry throughout this rough time comes in the form of their #ThankATrucker campaign.   One aspect of this campaign includes the ATA providing 55 gallon drums of hand sanitizer along major freight corridors so drivers can refill their personal supplies. Below are the current locations of their 10-sanitation refill locations. They are also providing industry updates of Covid-19 developments on their website and can be tracked through the following link, https://www.trucking.org/COVID19
