    Title: Precautions for Airline Flight Crews/Airport Personnel
    Type: Text Slide
    • All workers should use good hygiene practices, including frequent hand washing
    • Respiratory protection has not been recommended by CDC for airline crews
    • Airline cleaning crews, INS, TSA workers should wear gloves where appropriate

    Speaker Notes:

    12. CDC does not recommend respiratory protection for airline flight crews or airline personnel. But cleaning crews, Transportation Security Agency and Immigration and Naturalization Service workers should wear gloves. If a person on a flight is suspected of being infected with SARS, that individual should be separated from other passengers and provided a surgical mask, if available. All airline workers should wash their hands with soap and water frequently to prevent infection. In addition, aircraft crew members should notify the U.S. quarantine station if a passenger on an international flight entering the U.S. is suspected of having SARS.
