There are three main areas that truck drivers need to be aware of when driving and delivering goods. These areas are as follows:
 

Hands

When do you need to be concerned about your hands?

Face
 
Face masks may be mandatory in certain locations. You'll need to check with that particular locality. However, in most cases, you will need to wear a face mask whenever you cannot keep physical distance.

Physical Distance

 
When you are interacting in any area where others are, attempt to maintain two meters apart. This will ensure that you don't come in contact with the virus is someone coughs or sneezes.
