It was only a only a matter of time.

​​​“An American Airlines pilot based in Dallas has tested positive for coronavirus (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/03/12/coronavirus-poll-americans-worry-wash-hands-fear-financial-impact/5027074002/).

I was in DFW last week. Shall I quarantine? I live three miles from CVG upwind of the Atlas ramp, watch out now!

I just arrived in Chicago on a United flight 13 hours ago. Any UA pilots popping positive? Don’t really care, but it was unfortunately the fastest offload I have ever seen. Plenty of snacks though. Like “Cezzna”, I DH a lot... don’t worry bud, I am not headed back to that CVG ramp anytime soon. Well that might incorrect with our schedule changes.

My laptop got the "Stoned" virus. Should I exile to Jamaica?

Are they doing ok? Reading some reports that this is pretty nasty. Hope they recover quickly

Haven't heard as far as I know. Some very recent cases. I believe one was in question (but non symptomatic) and was told to fly. Apparently infected other crew members.
