Fourteen flight attendants under the flag carrier Hawaiian Airlines have tested positive for covid-19, after they attended a training session organised by the airline at its headquarters in Honolulu.
The airlines spokesman, Alex Da Silva in his statement said “We are supporting our team members in their recovery, and other employees involved in the training have been self-monitoring their health, in accordance with CDC and state Department of Health guidance provided to us,”
“We have also reinforced our office protocols to keep our employees safe and have temporarily canceled our flight attendant training in order to deep clean our facilities.”
According to the airlines website guests are required to wear face masks on flights same with our flight attendants they wear them while serving guests.
Amid the coronavirus crisis, Hawaii has mandated a 14-day quarantine for out-of-state visitors, though starting next month, visitors will be able to avoid the quarantine order if they can provide proof of a negative test for COVID-19 within 72 hours of travel.
Those who cannot produce proof of a negative test would still be required to quarantine for 14 days.
As of Wednesday morning, the Hawaii State Department of Health reports that there have been 1,071 cases of COVID-19 in the Aloha State and 19 death cases.
