ATLANTA (AP) — Another Georgia school district is switching to virtual learning, after two school bus drivers and a bus monitor died from COVID-19 in recent weeks.
The 9,700-student Griffin-Spalding County school system made the announcement late Monday.
It cited a disruption in student transportation.
Districts across Georgia are struggling to line up enough drivers and monitors to keep buses running.
In Savannah, some bus drivers staged a sickout for the second day on Tuesday after a similar protest Friday.
The number of COVID-19 patients in Georgia hospitals remains above 6,000, the highest level since the start of the pandemic.
