As some states are lifting their stay-at-home orders which directed all non-essential workers to remain home to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. Business are taking extra precautions to protect themselves and their customers from this virus that has yet to be eradicated.
Beginning on May 4, JetBlue will require their passengers to wear face coverings. The coverings are expected to be worn by passengers during check-in, boarding, flying and while getting off the plane. The covering should be over the mouth and nose. The only exemptions are small children that are not able to maintain face coverings.
This requirement comes after mandating that all of their staff wear coverings as long as they are on the clock.
JetBlue is also trying to help their customers practice social distancing during flights by lowering the number of available seats per flight. The extra spacing is only required for customers not traveling together and will be given via a pre-flight review.
Is JetBlue being responsible or overly cautious? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
