Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information from the FRA

The world is experiencing an expanding outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19). FRA encourages railroads to be informed and prepared.

Overview Reports

Use the following dashboard to access COIVD-19 data related to Illness Associated with COVID-19, Waiver Utilization Summary, Waiver Utilization by Location, Rail Industry Velocity & Terminal Dwell Ranges, Active Rail Industry Embargoes, and Freight Originations.

  • Use the filters on top of each dashboard to drill down by the various measures presented within the individual dashboards.
  • All dates shown represent the end of the weekly reporting period (Sunday - Saturday). The data is uploaded to the dashboards on the Friday after the weekly reporting period, as such there is a one week lag in the data.
    • Given the large reporting period, it is best to view data by a limited range of days. FRA has prepared unfiltered dashboards for the Waiver Utilization by Location and the Rail Industry Velocity & Terminal Dwell Ranges reports that can be downloaded as a .csv file which provide the full timeframe of data. Click on the link below to access the full range of data for the specific report:
