Crew Actions Following COVID-19 Exposure

Date: March 24, 2020

AFA-CWA International 

If you learn that you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus, call your physician and follow their instructions. Do not go to a doctor's office unless advised to do so. 

Report to AFA - Exposure to COVID-19 

The CDC guidance to passengers who have come in contact with a confirmed COVID- 19 case on their flight, is to self-quarantine, contact health authorities, and monitor health for 14 days. The guidelines provide an exemption for crew. While AFA does not agree with this guidance, we recommend Flight Attendants in these situations follow the same CDC guidance given to passengers and that you advise the company that you do not feel safe to fly. Self- quarantine for 14 days, contact your local health authorities, and monitor for symptoms. AFA is advocating that through our contact with the FAA, CDC, and lawmakers that airlines update their guidance to match that of the CDC for passengers. 

State and Local Health Department Contact Numbers 

If in Guam, call 671-735-7143; after hours and weekends, 888-WARN (9276). 

Interim Health Guidance from FAA and CDC (COVID-19) 

Questions and concerns can be directed to your AFA Local Safety Committee Representatives.
