The omicron surge caused Amtrak to cut back on some routes starting Monday.

Amtrak says it’s suspending a total of 8% of its departures and making adjustments to many long-distance routes.

Some Empire Service and Lake Shore Limited trains won’t be running.

The company is contacting customers with existing reservations.

Amtrak plans to resume the suspended services by late March or early April.
