At least two major airlines are reporting hundreds of employees have tested positive… 600 southwest employees and about 100 American Airlines have been diagnosed in the past few days. Most of the infected employees are flight attendants. Union officials say, “There’s just no reason why aircraft can’t be cleaned when they’re on the ground especially if they’re going to be on the ground for 50 minutes or more” … “I just hope that we can get the proper equipment for them to make sure that they’re fully protected.”
