Groveport Madison suspends school busing for 2 weeks due to COVID

The Columbus Dispatch |

An outbreak of COVID-19 among transportation staff in the Groveport Madison school district means students will be without buses for two weeks, starting Monday.

Because any bus drivers who were in close contact with the infected employees must quarantine, the district no longer has enough drivers for its routes. The district contracts with a Cincinnati-based company, Petermann, to hire its drivers. 

As of this past Friday morning, seven transportation employees have tested positive for the virus.
