TARGET UPDATED  DRIVER POLICY

TARGET RESPONSE PLAN
Please be aware, the following scenarios may result in a driver being asked to return home (and not enter Target property):
·         Driver informs Target they are experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, etc.).
·         Driver informs Target they have had prolonged contact in the last 14 days with someone with a diagnosis of COVID-19.
·         Driver refuses to wear a face covering where required by local, state, or federal guidelines.
Please note: Even in locations that are not under mandate, Target strongly recommends that all individuals wear a face covering when entering the building. Masks are required to perform all store deliveries.
 
We ask that drivers abide by all local/state/federal guidelines around covering requirements. Carriers are accountable for ensuring their drivers have the necessary face coverings, or other critical PPE, while on Target property.
 
NOTE: Drivers will not be allowed to return to a Target facility until they have met CDC requirements; including no known symptoms and quarantining for a minimum of 14 days.

TEXAS EASES TRAVEL RULES

updated 5-22-2020

Travelers flying to Texas from certain areas will no longer be required to self-quarantine for two weeks, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday.

Abbott issued an executive order terminating his restrictions that mandated 14-day quarantines for travelers flying from California, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Washington, Atlanta, Ga., Chicago, Ill., Detroit, Mich. or Miami, Fla.

Travelers from those hot spots for the coronavirus’s outbreak in the U.S. had been required to self-quarantine for two weeks.

Abbott’s order is effective immediately and ends any mandatory self-quarantine that was already underway, according to the executive order.

From Albertson's Denver, PA Facility: "We are starting a Driverless Receiving Dock that will require all carriers to utilize the on-site third party unloading service (Capstone Logistics).

We know this will be a change for our vendor and carrier partners and appreciate your cooperation during this current situation.."

Reinstated coronavirus restrictions by state: What you need to know

ARIZONA

Numerous governors throughout the country have reinstated safety precautions in recent weeks to try to combat the rapid spike in coronavirus cases weeks before large family gatherings and holiday getaway trips are slated to take place.

More than 11 million cases have been reported in the United States since the COVID-19 pandemic started, as Americans prepare to observe upcoming holidays.
