Three new COVID-19 cases at schools in Richmond have prompted a shutdown of school bus routes for the next week.

School officials aren’t saying how many students, teachers and bus drivers are now in quarantine.

Only the morning prekindergarten students are being bused and then just from school to home.

Students who are unable to get rides to school can work from home.

They can also call Richmond police for rides to and from school.
