At least as of now I feel like the reaction to Corona is overhyped. If you didnt read about it would you even know it existed or would it just be another flu season?

Lol because porta johns are way more sanitary than regular facilities with sinks people can wash their hands in.

One of our drivers mentioned the facilities are closed but parking still available with port a johns. Is that not the case?

I just came down the turnpike (476) south from Scranton and the Hickory Run and the Allentown service plaza were open for fuel, parking, and rest rooms; but the fast food places were closed. I'm currently shut down at the Delaware welcome center rest stop the main building is closed but the SUNOCO is open.

This, just in:

PA turnpike to reopen all 17 closed plazas 'to support truckers'

HA.. to support y'all. They were begrudgingly forced to. Either way...good for y'all. BE SAFE AND SANITARY~!

Jeremy... you are in our thoughts and prayers here in Ohio, as well. Big time.
