Delta Announces New Health Screenings for Passengers Who Can’t Wear Masks

Delta Air Lines will now require medical screenings for passengers who can’t wear face masks due to health reasons.

The company also asks that those mentioned reconsider flying altogether as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

A statement reads:

“If they decide to travel, they will be welcome to fly upon completing a virtual consultation prior to departure at the airport to ensure everyone’s safety, because nothing is more important.”

The virtual consultation will be conducted over the phone privately by STAT-MD, which “provides inflight emergency consultation as well as fitness-to-fly ground screening,” according to the company’s website. Delta will use the outcome of the screening to determine whether the passenger can fly maskless.

In June, Delta said passengers who do not comply with the mask or other safety requirements “risk future flight privileges with Delta.”
