    • Description:
      These guidelines provide cabin crew members (flight attendants) with practical measures to protect themselves, passengers, and other crew members when someone onboard is ill with a possible contagious infection. The practical measures for protecting yourselves and others include personal protection, management of an ill traveler, targeted clean-up measures, and post-flight measures. Since whether an illness is contagious is usually not known at the time, any body fluid (such as phlegm, diarrhea, vomit, or blood) must be treated as potentially infectious.

      This guideline provides information on general infection control measures, as well as specific measures according to three infection categories: respiratory, gastrointestinal, and blood-borne.

      As a general preventive measure, airline crew should be up to date on all recommended immunizations and other preventive health measures for their destination. Many infectious diseases can be prevented by vaccines!
