Other states have started to consider more drastic ways to protect against the spread of coronavirus. Widespread curfews, mandatory and voluntary quarantines, as well as other various local/regional restrictions will likely be commonplace in the foreseeable future.
MMTA is asking our members to be on the lookout, especially for proposed local restrictions, so that we can be sure deliveries and operations related to the supply chain are not impacted. Oftentimes, especially when decisions are made hastily in an effort to protect public health, there are unintended consequences that could have negative impacts such as inadvertently restricting the delivery of food, fuel, medicine and other supplies ordered online.
MMTA wants to be proactive to avoid transportation-related disruptions, so please contact Brian, Tim or Randy should you hear about any local or municipal action that may impact the delivery of goods.
