3 Healthy Things to Do When Social Distancing

3 Healthy Things to Do When Social Distancing

We are all learning how to live in this ‘new normal’ as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic. For most of us, that means staying at home in self-isolation and social distancing from friends and family. It can be a challenging time for everyone.

While we are not the experts when it comes to mental and physical health, we came across a great resource that provided tips for staying health and happy during this stressful time. As your neighbours, the team at Pro-Tow, Motorplex and Pro-Enviro are feeling the strain too, and thought these might be helpful.

Connect with Others

We might have to make a physical distance from the people we care about, but we don’t have to stop connecting with them. In a digital age, there are lots of options for connecting virtually including web chats, FaceTime, and other video conferencing software. Making connections can help you find the support you need, especially if you’re feeling lonely and isolated.

Go for a Walk.

If you are not under quarantine, or mandated self-isolation for traveling or having symptoms, health authorities have said it’s okay to take walks outside. You should only do this in areas where you can respect social distancing requirements, which means staying a minimum of 6 feet away from another person.

Both physical exercise and being outdoors can be helpful for your mental health. In fact, spending time in nature has many health benefits including stress reduction, boosted immune system, lowering blood pressure and general improved mood.

A walk, if you can keep 6 feet away from other people, can be a good way to break up your day. However, if you’re considered high risk due to your age and/or have an underlying health condition, you need to be extra cautious and might decide it’s best to stay indoors.

Take Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for many important body functions. Not only does it help us fight off disease, it can reduce depression and anxiety too. A study completed recently in Ireland found that vitamin D plays a vital role in preventing respiratory infections and can help boost the immune system as it responds to infections. If you can’t get outside for 15 minutes or more each day, consider a vitamin D supplement.

You can read more about that study here.

 

Can I Still Get My Car Towed During the COVID-19 Crisis?

Can I Still Get My Car Towed During the COVID-19 Crisis?

Having your car break down on the side of the road is already a stressful experience. Having it break down during a global pandemic can feel like a nightmare. The good news is that most people are choosing to stay at home, limit travel, and because of this the roads are not very busy. Fewer vehicles on the road mean fewer break downs. But still, if you’re traveling and you need emergency towing, you are not out of luck.

Pro-Tow Continues 24-Hour Towing Services

Pro-Tow 24-Hour Towing is offering emergency towing services around the clock. We operate out of Auburn, WA, Spokane, WA, and Maple Valley, WA, but our service area is expansive. If you need our help, we can still come to get your vehicle. 24-hour towing services and other recovery services are considered an essential service, and therefore, are still operating.

Staying Safe When Needing a Tow

There are a few things we need to take care of while operating during a health crisis. We are committed to the health and safety of our customers and will require a few things from you to help us protect our operators.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or are under quarantine, you need to let our phone operators know. Being aware of the risk will allow us to take extra safety precautions when towing your vehicle. That includes wearing gloves, using hand sanitizer and disinfecting areas that are touched by our operator. It might also mean that you will need to leave the keys on the seat and move away from the vehicle while they get it hooked up. You will not be permitted to ride with our driver in their truck and will need a ride if you are away from your home.

If you do not have symptoms and are not self-isolating, we will still take precautions. We will keep 2 meters away from you while hooking up your vehicle. Our operators will do their best to keep you and themselves protected, including wearing gloves and using hand sanitizer.

24-Hour Towing Services for Light, Medium, and Heavy-Duty Vehicles

Pro-Tow offers towing services for light auto, medium trucks, and heavy-duty trucks. If you’re broken down in your car or need a tow from home, we can help. If you have issues with a fleet vehicle or a semi-truck accident, we can help. We are committed to undisrupted emergency towing services during this time.

Trucking Industry Needs Support, Now More Than Ever

Trucking Industry Needs Support, Now More Than Ever

As the COVID-19 outbreak spreads across the United States, regular travel and transportation is restricted in many jurisdictions. The border is now closed to Canada, except for essential travel, including the transportation of goods. We might continue to see travel restrictions tighten as things progress, but for our truckers, they are working hard to maintain the transport of goods.

Pro-Tow 24-Hour Towing offers heavy-duty tow services and semi-truck accident recovery services in Washington State and beyond. We are watching this pandemic closely and understand the importance of our service to the transport industry. Trucking companies will be able to count on us when they are in need of heavy-duty towing or accident recovery as we navigate this unprecedented time.

How is COVID-19 impacting the trucking industry?

There is a demand for taking supplies to stores that have run out of items that are in high demand. These items include toilet paper, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and essential food items. While warehouses have ample supply of these things, nervous shoppers are purchasing more than usual, and more than they need in many cases. A daily restock of shelves means more goods are required.

This has created an increase in products that need to be transported to grocery stores and warehouses throughout the country. Included in this demand, are vital medical supplies, safety equipment, and COVID-19 testing kits that need to be moved to other states.

Are truck drivers safe?

When speaking with the trucking companies that we work with closely, we are assured that drivers are following protocol regarding health and safety amidst this pandemic. Thankfully, most of their time is spent in total isolation on the road. Most truck stop services like restaurants and bars are now closed to prevent the spread of the virus. Transport companies and their employees are focused on good health practices when in contact with others, including keeping a safe distance, hand washing, and sanitization of equipment.

If there is an accident within our service area, trucking companies can depend on Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing for assistance. We are still fully operational, offering heavy duty towing and accident recovery, including spill response, and are there to support transport companies and their drivers during this crisis. If your driver and fleet are in trouble on the road, we will be there to help, while taking all the health and safety precautions necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
