Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new respiratory virus that can spread through droplets in the air or by touching surfaces touched by someone with the virus. This new National RTAP technical brief, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Information and Resources for Transit, will help your transit agency staff and passengers through information and resources about the risks and evidence-based strategies. The brief covers what is known about COVID-19 at this time and the basics of planning, prevention and treatment.

Since this tech brief was first released on March 9, 2020, we have added updated statistics and new information about conference planning and vaccine and treatment clinical trials that have launched.

We have also added new resources to our Coronavirus Hot Topic Guide.
