A Message from ATD Chairman Steve Bassett on COVID-19

Bassett-Steve (2020) 100x130

ATD is working hard to navigate the complexities of this swiftly moving virus. Given what we know today, it’s our duty to do what we can to slow the spread and minimize the impact on the public at large, particularly for the hardworking medical professionals on the front lines. The health and safety of our dealership employees and customers is the priority.

This is uncharted territory for all of us and for all industries across the nation. As dealers, we always want to know the latest and understand the impact this is having on our customers. We are closely monitoring dealer-centric issues and I will be sure to report on these issues as all variables are understood.

As ATD chairman, I will do my part by giving you transparent information as quickly as I can. Please reach out to ATD with questions, concerns or vital updates about your market. Above all, please stay calm and patient. Look after one another. And remember, we will face this together

Given the constantly changing circumstances regarding COVID-19, NADA/ATD has prepared a host resources where you can access federal government guidance and other materials to help manage new-truck dealerships.
