What’s going on?
Delta said it will partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the launch of the new program, which will look to keep “international customers informed of potential COVID-19 exposure.”
- “Along with our nine global airline partners, we are working with government agencies, health officials and aviation authorities to offer safer travel at every point in your journey,” Delta said in a release.
How it works:
- Full name.
- Email address.
- U.S. address.
- Primary phone number.
- Secondary phone number.
The information will be sent to the CDC. This will allow the CDC to contact flyers who may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus.
