JetBlue Bars Coronavirus Passenger For Life 03/16/2020

According to Scott Rodman, who told CNBC he was sitting near the infected passenger during the flight, after passengers were deplaned, they were taken to a meeting room at the airport to speak with health department officials. It said JetBlue staff at the gate where the passenger departed immediately took action to sanitize the surrounding area and any others the passenger had visited "based on security camera footage". "In reviewing last night's event, we determined the customer boarded our flight knowing he was awaiting results for a coronavirus test without disclosing it to anyone at JetBlue". They understood doors, security checkpoints, check-in counters and kiosks, elevators and restrooms.

JetBlue has since announced that they would be banning the unnamed passenger from the airline.

"He was wearing masks and gloves".

JetBlue has barred a passenger from flying on its planes ever again after the traveler learned during a flight from NY to Florida that he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

"This is on top of the enhanced cleaning protocols that have been in place", the spokeswoman added.

"The passengers in the vicinity of the positive patient were informed of the monitoring procedures".

Following news of the passenger's journey aboard the JetBlue flight from NY to Palm Beach, the Florida Health Department says it is conducting an "extensive epidemiological investigation" to determine whether or not the man passed the virus to any other passengers.

Jet Blue has banned an unidentified passenger after he allegedly boarded a plane from New York City to West Palm Beach, Florida, after testing positive for COVID-19.

Agents with the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County assessed the situation and spoke with all the passengers aboard the aircraft. "When he was sitting on the plane, he got either a phone call or a text message saying that it was a positive test". "It's kind of wild, if you have gotten tested, to go on a plane". In the meantime, the passenger's current condition and where he's being held for quarantine is unclear. JetBlue is one of many airlines that offers customers the option to change travel plans by waiving standard fares for changes and cancellations.

"We're asking customers who do not feel well or are concerned they may have coronavirus to not fly until cleared to travel by a doctor or health professional", a JetBlue spokesman told the New York Daily News.

At least 127,000 patients have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, with at least 4,717 deaths reported worldwide. In the US, there are 1,663 confirmed cases and 40 coronavirus-related deaths.President Donald Trump announced Wednesday night that he was severely restricting air travel for 30 days from most of Europe as Italy and other countries battle to contain the outbreak.
