Default 35 Delta pilots positive?

Apparently 35 Delta pilots have tested positive for the virus. I heard it was on the Delta ALPA website.
​​​​​​
Just a heads up. With the sick UA pilot reporting his recovery here today, the email from Bob Fox stating that the airlines are not following CDC guidance for cleaning up and notifying others after a pilot tests positive, and the CCS message saying that masks are now in the CPO as available, and the sick employee in Willis Tower (who whished to remain anonymous) saying the company was concerned with optics, I have a hunch some news is coming. How many of our guys have it?

Default New info.

Now I just heard Delta is up to 45 positive. So the "close to 50" checks.

It was "A Message from ..... Apr 01 20 1721 CT". Looked systemwide to me. CPO providing "alcohol-based hand sanitizer, wipes, and masks when available".

​​​​​The mask thing is new. Haven't seen that before. I think before they were only part of the bio cleanup kits but I could be wrong.

Found it thanks. Looks like the company is finally listening.

Optics, huh?

I've been wearing a mask for 2 weeks. Pretty sure the company authorized it awhile ago (although they didn't provide them for domestic crews).

If you or your sweetie pie is sewing enabled, you can make your own (better than nothing.) Amazon is selling "saliva" masks; basically nock offs that aren't approved by the CDC, but will block 70% of the crap out there PLUS keep you from touching your darn face.


IMHO, wear it. Nobody at the airport cares.

I think it's higher than that. This is just the guys who have reported it to ALPA.
