WOW!
That really surprises me. LOL

UPS Press Release:
“UPS places the utmost emphasis on the safety of our employees, especially as we work through this coronavirus pandemic.

Here at Worldport, we are taking numerous extra steps to safeguard our workers. We are adding additional shuttles at Worldport to allow for more distancing, we have enhanced shuttle cleaning procedures, and we are looking at alternate drive paths to minimize the amount of time employees spend on the trams. We have enhanced cleaning of our employee entrances, break rooms and other common areas.

Companywide, we continue to educate employees about good public health practices, most importantly frequent hand washing, as well as CDC guidance that it’s very unlikely to be infected by handling boxes.


This is a fluid situation, and we continue to look at practices and policies to enhance the well-being of UPS people as they move critical shipments that save lives and livelihoods during this crisis.”

Yep.

Who isn’t showering because of coronavirus?!?!?!
That one made me scratch my head too. Then I remembered that I shouldn't.

And it is but the facilities and the trucks are complete cesspools. If they want to pay drivers and preloaders 3-4 hours per day to clean everything fine. If not they need to hire someone

I love my job. Don't you?
Hopefully more press can be put to exposing them for the frauds that they are. Our hubs are filthy and disgusting. Our trucks never get cleaned. Inside our out anymore. They have a lady going around with a mop and squeegee to clean our windsheilds6 (I kid you not) nothing available to sanitize our trucks. I hope they get exposed finally for what they are.

UPS employees exposure is nothing compared to the police force.
In all probability, when this is over, 50% of Americans will have contracted the disease with maybe 5% showing any symptoms and maybe 1% considered themselves feeling 'sick'.
Whatever the case, after this is over, we all will have learned something from this, and IMO, it will be that we overreacted once again.

With that said, I am sheltering in place in my basement. o_O

Let’s get back
My main question is.....do viruses living on steel jump off the steel onto packages, then as the package is carried jump off the package to the hand of a delivery man, after which it then gets rubbed on his face and infects him? Or am I being irrational....

I could not agree more on the over reaction part. This is like a bad movie out here anymore.
