‘Clear, uniform, national’ coronavirus guidelines needed for U.S. air travel, Sen. Cantwell says
Passengers say airlines’ new social distancing measures are unevenly applied. Not all airports have taken steps recommended by public health officials to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
And above all, Washington Sen. Maria Cantwell wrote Monday in a letter to federal transportation officials, the aviation industry has taken far too long to beef up its response to COVID-19.
What’s missing, said the letter to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, are “clear, uniform, national COVID-19 guidelines for the aviation sector” from the executive branch.
