    Thoughts on Browns Virus Contingency Plan? Wondering whats the plan for protecting the employees. Are we covered by regular health insurance or workers comp when working in dangerous conditions? We need to think about our own safety and prepare for possibilities. Public interaction is a possible job hazard. Someone in the Far East is underestimating it seems.

    The company has no contingency plans.
    If you contract coronavirus they'll just say it happened off the clock.

    You can’t make this up

    I know a driver that was in China when all this went down. He came back to work yesterday

    The brilliant minds at UPS decided in order to protect the other employees they would change his start time until all the other driver were gone

    to hell with the hundreds of people he comes into contact with everyday

    I was tracking flights in and out of China on the FlightAware app when it all started. You could/can see the virus spreading in real time.
