The novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) respiratory disease pandemic has spread rapidly and presents a serious public health risk. All 50 states have now reported cases of COVID-19, and many states have closed K-12 public schools, a move that heavily impacts students, parents, school district employees, and, of course, pupil transporters.

To help our readers stay up to speed during this ever-changing situation, School Bus Fleet has corralled its coverage of the Coronavirus and COVID-19, as well as additional resources, all here in one place.
