Flight Attendants continue to operate on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak. As essential workers we are placed at a higher risk for exposure while at work. Your Safety, Health and Security Committee has been hard at work ensuring you have the tools you need to remain safe amid this pandemic. 

In addition to your pre-flight checks ensure you also check for gloves, masks and sanitizing supplies such as Lysol sprays or Clorox wipes. Should you find that your supplies are low, or all together missing, follow your chain of command and act accordingly.  

As a reminder, if you find yourself flying without the necessary supplies file an IOR and check the box to send a copy to AFA. 

In every instance, should you have a medical condition that potentially compromises your personal safety or cause you concern, you are strongly encouraged to consult with your personal physician.  If you have a family member whose health may be at risk if exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please consult your medical resources.
