COVID-19’s Impact on Fuel Delivery

FMCSA Hours of Service Waiver

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has been waiving certain Hours of Service (HOS) regulations in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

While the waiver does not include fuel delivery at this time, the FMCSA stands ready to help with fuel delivery waivers as needed.

Please email me if you are experiencing a delivery driver shortage due to Coronavirus. Representation will express the need for a fuel delivery waiver of HOS restrictions.

Information RI Residents Should Know


  • To prevent infection with COVID-19, the CDC recommends frequent handwashing with soap and warm water; coughing and sneezing into your elbow or a tissue; avoid touching mouth, nose, and eyes; and if you are sick, stay at home.
  • There are many respiratory illnesses circulating in Rhode Island, such as the flu and the common cold. Having respiratory symptoms does not mean that you have COVID-19. People are at higher risk for COVID-19 if they have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever, shortness of breath) AND if they were a contact of a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 (or have traveled to country with community transmission).
  • Someone is considered a contact if they have had direct, face-to-face contact with a person with COVID-19. Testing can only be done on individuals who have symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19 and who have had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or travel history to a country with ongoing community spread of COVID-19. Testing individuals with no symptoms or history of travel is not recommended by CDC.
  • If you are subject to self-quarantine that means:
    • Stay home.
    • Do not go to work, school, or public areas.
    • Do not use public transportation.
    • Separate yourself from other people in your home. As much as possible, you should stay in a different room from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
  • People who think they have COVID-19 should call their healthcare provider. These people should NOT go directly to a healthcare facility without calling a healthcare provider (unless they are experiencing a medical emergency).

People with general questions about COVID-19 can call 401-222-8022.
