A Message from Bill Hamilton, Director, Teamsters Express Division

As we all know, with the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we find ourselves in very difficult and unprecedented times. I hope all of you are safe and I urge you to monitor and follow the necessary safety and health practices recommend by the CDC and various state and local government authorities. The situation is developing rapidly and we need to stay on top of things.

This is a rapidly evolving situation. This fact sheet will be updated online as needed. See links at the end of this fact sheet for the most up-to-date information.

This guidance, based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, applies to all first respondersi, including law enforcement, fire services, emergency medical services (EMS), and emergency management officials, who anticipate close contact with persons with confirmed or possible COVID-19 in the course of their work. View the factshhet, here.

Our nation’s health-care workers are giving us a daily profile in courage as they serve on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19—increasingly at the expense of their own health. But there’s another group of Americans out there quietly and often very much alone, working long hours to keep supply lines intact so that our health-care workers have vitally needed medical supplies and the rest of us have groceries and other essential supplies.
