Stay-at-Home Statewide

Orlando, Florida—The new stay-at-home order issued by Governor Ron DeSantis is a statewide mandate. Florida now joins more than 30 states that are under a "stay-at-home" order. It will take effect Thursday at midnight and last 30 days.

What does that mean for truck drivers?

It all begins with defining essential operations and activities. The executive order goes by the Department of Homeland Security’s guidance on essential workers. 

According to the Department of Homeland Security, functioning critical infrastructure is imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health and safety as well as community well-being. Certain critical infrastructure industries have a special responsibility in these times to continue operations.

Regarding transportation:

  • Employees supporting or enabling transportation functions, including truck drivers, bus drivers, dispatchers, maintenance and repair technicians, warehouse workers, truck stop and rest area workers, Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) employees, towing/recovery services, roadside assistance workers, intermodal transportation personnel, and workers who maintain and inspect infrastructure (including those that require cross-jurisdiction travel).
  • Workers supporting the distribution of food, pharmaceuticals (including materials used in radioactive drugs) and other medical materials, fuels, chemicals needed for water or water treatment and energy   Maintenance and operation of essential highway infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and tunnels (e.g., traffic operations centers and moveable bridge operators).
  • Employees of firms providing services, supplies, and equipment that enable warehouse and operations, including cooling, storing, packaging, and distributing products for wholesale or retail sale or use. Includes cold- and frozen-chain logistics for food and critical biologic products.
  • Workers including truck drivers, railroad employees and contractors, maintenance crew, and cleaners supporting transportation of chemicals, hazardous, medical, and waste materials to support critical infrastructure, capabilities, functions, and services, including specialized carriers, crane and rigging industry workers.

On commercial facilities logistics:

  • Workers who support the supply chain of building materials from production through application/installation, including cabinetry, fixtures, doors, cement, hardware, plumbing, electrical, heating/cooling, refrigeration, appliances, paint/coatings, and employees who provide services that enable repair materials and equipment for essential functions.
  • Workers supporting e-commerce through distribution, warehouse, call center facilities, and other essential operational support functions.
  • Workers in hardware and building materials stores, consumer electronics, technology and appliances retail, and related merchant wholesalers and distributors - with reduced staff to ensure continued operations.
  • Workers distributing, servicing, repairing, installing residential and commercial HVAC systems, boilers, furnaces and other heating, cooling, refrigeration, and ventilation equipment.

As we know, the coronavirus pandemic has led to unprecedented hoarding that has created havoc in the supply chain. Truck drivers, many who are not paid by the hour, are working under suspended hours of service regulations to replenish store shelves. We all have a role to play to help our country get through the coronavirus crisis. We must help the truck drivers stay healthy as they travel state to state replenishing store shelves for all of us.
