COVID-19 Team Member Update: Stay vigilant, stay safe.

As the COVID-19 Delta variant continues to spread across the nation, we want to make sure you’re staying safe and healthy on the road.  As of Wednesday, September 22nd, the CDC reported a seven-day average of 121,533 new cases, 9,636 new hospitalizations, and 1,545 deaths.

Just this month, 69 U.S. Xpress team members have tested positive for COVID-19, and we lost another team member to this virus. We mourn their loss and wish the best to those who have tested positive, particularly those hospitalized.

Your safety is our priority, but it is everyone’s responsibility to do their part. We ask that you follow all CDC guidelines, including practicing social distancing when possible, taking breaks in your cab instead of driver lounges or other common areas. Additionally, you are required to follow any guidelines set in place at any customer location.

Per recommendations from the broad healthcare community and other experts (including the CDC, Mayo Clinic, and many more), we remain convicted that the safest and fastest way to protect each other is to get vaccinated. If you are not yet vaccinated, please consider getting the shot(s) as soon as possible for your safety and the safety of those around you. We also know that President Biden’s vaccine mandate announcement last week raises questions for many. Click here for more information on our response to the mandate announcement:

Stay tuned for more information as we continue assessing the best plan of action to keep everyone safe and healthy.
