I came down with the flu this weekend. I still got my assignments done, but it was tough. Then I heard a news report that the flu is making a big push right now and there is some intestinal thing going around that isn’t flu but has some same symptoms. Sanitize those hands and hopefully you can avoid what’s going around.

I carry hand sanitizer liquid and wipes in my pocket every time I leave my truck to go into a Truck Stop/ Rest Stop. I wipe off toilet seats, stall handles, faucet handles, etc. I may be a bit of a germophobe, but most of those places are pretty disgusting. Plus the fact that at least 90 percent of Truck Drivers are complete #$@&*! SLOBS!

Got that Tractor Man. I can't believe some of them. Won't go into details. Soon as get back to my tractor I wipe my hands and then anything I've touched. So you're not a germaphobe, just common sense.

I would consider carrying a can of disinfectant spray....I imagine you would look to out of place by carrying a small bag or satchel into the truck stop.

By the time you get back to your tractor, how many times hav you touched your face, mouth, eyes, nose? Too late by then. Go in armed!

I buy those Equate wipes at WalMart. But sometimes the virus is gonna get to us regardless of how careful we are. And the ironic part is that I got a flu shot last Monday

Stopped at the Pilot in Kearney MO this morning, seen a guy come out of a stall, cupped hands together in the sink and drank from it. Then he left. *PUKE*!!!!!

On a side note, it's a risk many of us take, but driving while I'll can get you a heafty ticket and put you out of service.

That is true. Whether you are in a CMV or POV, never tell a LEO, I was weaving or whatever, because "I'm sick" or "I'm tired". Im not saying they WILL cite you, but theyCAN!
