Emergency Infectious Disease Regulations

These temporary regulations from the Department of Labor are capricious, burdensome and, quite possibly, run afoul of existing regulations on privacy. As an essential service, trucking has continued throughout the current pandemic to provide needed goods and services to sustain the population and the economy. Trucking has been able to do this by making commonsense adjustments to its operations, both on the road and within its shops and offices necessary to continue daily operations.
