While masks were advertised as being available to all T&E crews 2 Mondays ago, none are available in the field. Cleaning supplies have been hit and miss as far as availability goes. PTI minivans mean no social distancing, particularly when hauling 2 crews. Neither Atlanta nor Chattanooga PTI yard vans can demonstrate cleaning supplies to provide sanitizing between crews, except personally supplied materials. Availability of cleaning materials in crew reporting locations hit and miss.
