With vaccines available to anyone over the age of 16 and over 40% of Americans now vaccinated, we are entering into a new phase. As a result, The Shippers Group will move our updates from bi-weekly to monthly.

It’s been one year since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic and much has changed. Throughout the past year we have endured the lockdown, coined new terms such as social distancing, become accustomed to wearing masks, and demonstrated our resilience overcoming new obstacles in the wake of the spread of Coronavirus. It’s been a tough year, but in our communities, in our workplaces, and in our families we have persevered. For some it continues to be a struggle as many are battling the virus, families are grieving the loss of loved ones, and countless continue to deal with unemployment and hunger.
