Coronavirus: Courier drivers safety guidelines lacking

From Morning Report, 8:38 am on 27 March 2020

Courier drivers for New Zealand Post in Wellington say the company is not doing enough to make them feel safe as they work through the lockdown.

Some workers say they have only been given a pair of gloves and a small bottle of hand sanitizer, and up to 100 people are being forced to share a few toilets, which are dirty.

They say they weren't given the option of not working, and catching Covid-19 is constantly on their minds.
