    “…But as of right now, the executive board has not been notified of any threat to any of our members.”

    There is a threat to the members who operate buses. The status changes overnight. Social distancing should be 6 feet of no more than 50 people, according to the CDC, and the Governor for the next 8 weeks. The farebox is less than 2 feet away from the operator. Bars and restaurants are being closed to take out and delivery. Schools are closing. I’m 58, close to the age group of vulnerability to the virus. I have heart disease, a symptom of vulnerability to the virus. The stress and anxiety of this is through the roof affecting my job. I canceled my flight reservation in two weeks because of this virus.
