Free Sanitizer And Masks For DoorDash Couriers

How To Order Free Personal Protection Equipment

DoorDash is offering free hand sanitizer and disposable/cloth masks to their couriers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This initiative is helping to offset the expense and availabilty of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for courriers.

According to DoorDash’s website, “All active Dashers in the US, Canada, and Australia can now order consumer-grade masks from the special Dasher store completely free of charge1.”

Current DoorDash courriers can order free PPE online, availability prioritized to dashers who signed up in 2020.

PPE items available include a 4-ounce hand sanitizer bottle, ten-pack of disposable face masks, gloves, and cloth face masks.

Do I Still Need To Wear A Mask?

DoorDash’s mask policy requires dashers, merchants, and customers to wear face coverings while using its delivery service.

U.S. President Biden remarked in his recent ‘COVID-19 Response’ address that non-vaccinated individuals should still wear masks in public, though.

“Get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do.  It’s vax’ed or masked.  Get vaccinated.”

Fully-vacincated people are not be required to wear masks indoors or outdoors, or abide by social-distancing rules nationwide.

Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires people two-years-old and above to wear a mask in public, and social distancing is to be practiced alongside wearing a mask.

How to Wear a Mask

CDC Face Coverings Guidelines

The mask should fit snugly against the face, and cover the nose and mouth.

Before touching or removing the mask, wash your hands for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with 60-percent alcohol.

“A mask is NOT a substitute for social distancing. Masks should still be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially when indoors around people who don’t live in your household.”

CDC3

Wear a mask indoors if someone within your household has tested positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms.

Mask mandates vary by your area, check your region’s rules before leaving home.
