CRJ GPS issues

Good morning all.

I am hearing of CRJ GPS issues across the USA. CRJ aircraft only are flying no GPS causing delays throughout their route networks.

This has been discussed by Delta, United, and Air Canada in reference to their CRJ operating partners.

Can anyone shine more light on this?
