    We had a positive test for a grand rapids delivery driver. He is in quarantine now. We were alerted at a PCM. We stopped doing those this week but it was stupid because they gathered us all in one place to go over it and on top of that we have been taking separate breaks but they went and had everyone take break together. There must've been 20 guys in the break room area.

    Grand Rapids has done a good job of taking steps to maintain social distance before and after work with the guard shack. Leaving doors open and the entrance to building. Otherwise one day we were offered gloves those only last a few days. No mask. They have someone wiping down equipment before the shift but everyone is touching everything through the shift. They have not done a good job production wise theyre still 2 per trailer within 3-4 feet of one another. At some point that will have to stop.

    i wonder if they informed everyone he delivered to that he had it or his preloader or people in the building he's talked with as just conversation you can give the virus to people.

    Made me LOL... At what point do you think that will be?
    It's pretty much too late now. Most people have it, they just don't know it yet.

    You are responsible for your own health. If it's unsafe. Do not work next to somebody. You have rights. Use them

    I, too, would like to believe this virus is a hoax, an elaborate and well orchestrated ploy, to what end....I don't know but the number of countries involved would be difficult to blow smoke up the world's pant leg.....wouldn't you think?

    You know what you do when you get a message like that? You call in at every single stop and say you need to back. I bet after 3 times they tell you to stop calling. Buncha clowns, during a pandemic no less. Drivers are already shook, and now they roll this * out.

    Yeah I never had a lot of backs. Delivered in a very rich area and walked every stop off. All my backs were early in the morning doing my business. Maybe 5 tops. But if I got that message my backs would've been through the roof that day.

    Talk about not reading the room. Still harping on this dumb BS when we’re dealing with this virus. Ridiculous.
