Covid and Trucking

Hi guys, I'm planning on doing my CDL training towards the end of the year or in January. I have a few concerns I could use some help with. How has covid affected Trucking as a whole? Have there been large lay-offs for some? Do you think it will bring more layoffs? Are the paid training schools doing ok thru this? Are any of you concerned Covid (other than getting it) may shut you down? Any advice/suggestions for someone coming in during these times?

What kind of drug test?

I got no problems giving up the weed.....just got problem being trapped in this house for 90 days with this woman. She's not coming with me lol. She's staying here do her own thing, I'm moving to the mainland..not coming back to Hawaii

Mike, if you "can't go 90 days sober (and stand to be) with your woman", then you have a hard choice to make if you want to start the process of getting your CDL. I understand many do hair-follicle testing, but am not certain all do. Just my opinion, If you are serious in wanting to drive a Semi-tractor, you are going to have to give up the pot and any/all recreational drugs.

Aloha to all. I'm just a covid refugee holed up here in Hawaii. Got laid off for covid March 25th and been going crazy staying home, my girl and I both smoke weed, we argue too much if we don't. It don't make us all lovey-dovey, just makes it possible for us to live in the same house without bloodshed ;0). When I heard the paid training programs are still running I was ready to go, until I read the program I was headed for used hair follicle testing. I got no problem giving up the weed, but now I gotta wait 90 days, I can't go 90 day's sober with this woman, and I don't wanna poor that much alcohol down my throat either, seriously I'd need detox by the time I was done......Do all programs use hair follicle testing?

Thanks MM
