For most of you, getting on an airplane right now is the furthest thing from your mind. But there are a few people who still have to fly for specific reasons, and there are others who are flying for no good reason. This means that flight crews still have to work, putting themselves at risk.
Sara Nelson, the President of the Association of Flight Attendants, posted this eye opening photo today:
ENOUGH! This was TODAY on a four hour flight. This is not okay. Masks must be mandated by DOT/HHS in airports and on airplanes. Essential travel only, with proper PPE. #COVID19 #StopTheSpread pic.twitter.com/TzwJyVRBoD

It’s disturbing that some people are flying without covering even covering their faces. But as Nelson points out, the Trump regime could fix this with the stroke of a pen by making it mandatory on airplanes. It’s yet another instance of Donald Trump and his regime refusing to do their jobs.
