Additional Guidance for Face Coverings (Apr 16 2020)

To our valued agents and partners,

Additional guidance was issued by USTRANSCOM regarding the use of cloth face coverings. Click here for the full message.

The guidance includes:

  • Effective immediately, DoD customers, family members, and all individuals supporting any type of shipment pickup and delivery, on and off military installations, will wear cloth face coverings while servicing a customer’s residence as the residence now transitions to a workplace in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • A cloth face covering shall extend above the nose without interfering with eyewear, and below the chin to cover the mouth and nostrils completely. It shall fit snugly but comfortably against the sides of the face and be secured (e.g., by being tied in place or with ear-loops).
  • Individuals may fashion face coverings from household items or common materials, such as clean t-shirts or other clean clothes that can “cover the nose and mouth area.” CDC guidance on use and instructions for homemade face coverings (including no-sew options using common household items) may be found here.

Below is additional guidelines we’re asking our agents to implement for all Suddath moves:

  • Follow your company Health and Safety and all Covid-19 GHP requirements to reduce the spread and comply with all local Health and government directives.
  • To stop the spread of disease (Coronavirus) 6ft distancing should be implemented on all Suddath moves. Disposable gloves should be worn at all times to eliminate spreading of disease through touching contaminated surfaces. Good Hygiene Practices (GHP) should be followed at all times by washing hands regularly, at least every 2 hours. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if water is not available and clean shared surfaces before and after use especially on material handling equipment.
  • If there is concern of a potential Coronavirus exposure, please contact your Suddath Business Development Representative immediately.
