CDC’s Ebola Advice to Airline Crews: Watch for Passengers ‘Using Restroom Many Times’

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has produced a video designed to instruct commercial airline crews on what they need to know and do considering that someone suffering from Ebola might end up on one of their flights.

The video advises crew members working in the passenger cabins of commercial airliners on international flights to watch for people “who seem unwell or are using the restroom many times.”

It also advises airline crew members that they “will not know what a sick traveler has,” but that they should “wear waterproof disposable gloves before touching an ill person or body fluids” and that they should protect themselves “from splashes or sprays by using a surgical mask, face shield, or goggles, and protective apron or gown.”
