The following is a reply that we received from the NYS DMV Bus Driver Unit when we inquired about Article 19A compliance during the COVID-19 pandemic:
March 23, 2020
We are aware that many carriers are experiencing difficulty in completing their annual and biennial 19-A procedures due to constraints caused by the COVID-19 emergency. While the Bus Driver Unit urges you to make every effort to comply with 19-A procedural requirements, please be assured that full consideration of the circumstances will be given when conducting future compliance reviews. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding 19-A requirements during this emergency, please email us and we will respond as soon as we can.
Bravo Zulu would like to remind our 19A compliance customers that we will work with you in any way we can to assist you with your Article 19A compliance needs following this crisis. But in the interim, we will limit our services only to services provided electronically such as CDL Abstracts, electronic file reviews and medical certification reviews.
