Russian rocket goes BOOM again – this time with a crew on it


They could send another Soyuz capsule up unmanned. Or one of the commercial crew capsules could be sent up, I believe the capsules have been approved it is just the rockets that are still awaiting final certification for crewed launched. Both SpaceX and Boeing have to send unmanned capsules up to the ISS anyway to prove they work, before they will be allowed to launch a crew in them.

I'm sure there are lots of people at NASA and Roskosmos canceling their weekend plans as we speak.
