OneRail Launches Resource Page on Rail Industry Response to COVID-19

OneRail Members, Partners, Friends, and News Media Representatives:

As the United States is faced with the unprecedented COVID-19 health emergency, the OneRail Coalition is sharing information from its members about how they are managing during this global crisis.

America’s freight railroads, short line railroads, Amtrak, commuter rail/transit, and rail suppliers are committed to protecting their employees and members of the public while performing their critical roles of safely moving freight and passengers.

The OneRail Coalition website is highlighting the issue, with a new landing page offering information and resources on how OneRail member organizations are handling the COVID-19 global health emergency.

In addition, the page has links to guidance on identifying essential, critical infrastructure workers from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security CISA, to improve coordination between the government and the private sector to ensure key employees can get to work.

Our resource page also has a link to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 website with the latest available information for citizens and businesses.

OneRail’s information will be updated as needed throughout the coming weeks.
