Next time you fly, you may be asked to fill out a coronavirus health questionnaire before you board the plane.
Trade organization Airlines for America announced this week that its members are or will soon require passengers to submit a health acknowledgment during the check-in process.
Airlines for America members include Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Southwest and United airlines.
The questionnaires will ask passengers to acknowledge that they have brought a face mask and intend to wear it; that they do not have a fever, cough or shortness of breath among other coronavirus symptoms; and that they have not been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 in the 14 days leading up to their flight.
President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio called the acknowledgments “an added layer of protection” against the coronavirus.
The move comes after Airlines for America announced that all its members would require passengers to wear masks on flights and “vigorously enforce” face covering policies.
