    I’m reading stories about shippers and receivers refusing to do their jobs because on the virus and leaving drivers hanging. Is this true? Any first hand accounts?

    I heard it's only for refrigerated or frozen stuff.

    "Work at sysco in the coming weeks is going to be really weird.

    What is the casino I'm going to going to order? I know the high school nearby isn't going to get anything. There's probably not going to be any restaurants or bars nearby getting anything either. Who am I going to deliver to? Or maybe everyone has staff there but not open and they're going to be half orders.

    The only thing I can think of getting regular orders are hospitals and retirement homes.

    Gonna have some easy weird days here soon." Yuuyo.
