As everyone knows, COVID-19 has had a great impact on the world. It has affected schools, businesses, the economy, and people. Today we will discuss the impact on people, but more specifically, on truck drivers.
According to Truck drivers speak out on how COVID-19 has impacted their daily life, “Since restaurants are reduced to take out or drive through only food options, truckers are finding themselves eating primarily at truck stops.” Drivers have had a hard time getting food on the road since restaurants have closed down. With more things opening back up, hopefully drivers are finding it easier to find available food options.

Demand for supplies has been very high, and according to this article in Heavy Duty Trucking, drivers are struggling to protect their health while out on the road. This virus has truly had a big impact on truck drivers, and the trucking industry.
