In response to COVID-19, Delta has taken additional steps to transform cleanliness and safety so you can feel confident during your upcoming trip. Throughout the pandemic, the changes made have been a direct result of your feedback, as well as the strong relationships Delta has built with the medical community. This includes experts like Dr. Carlos del Rio, executive associate dean and infectious diseases professor at Emory School of Medicine, and others from Emory Healthcare, a globally recognized health system in our home state of Georgia.
Extending the blocking of middle seats
As you plan your future trips, including travel to visit family for the holidays, rest assured that we have extended our policy of blocking middle seats and limiting the number of customers on every flight through Jan. 6, 2021. Data and science drive this approach to your care and protection. The medical experts at Emory Healthcare agree: distance matters.
Expanding partnerships and employee testing
When you fly, you want to know that every detail of your travel has been considered from a health and safety perspective. Layers of protection have been implemented with guidance from medical experts at Emory to help mitigate your risk of bacterial and viral spread. The cleanliness throughout your trip is a result of Delta’s newly established Global Cleanliness division and partnership with RB, the makers of Lysol.
Requiring you and our employees to wear masks
As the pandemic continues, wearing a mask remains the best, most readily available and most efficient defense method to protect against COVID-19, which is why Delta requires a mask on every trip.
You have our commitment to continue to do everything possible to fight this disease and ensure your health and safety when you fly or visit our healthcare facilities. Thank you for wearing your mask to protect yourself and those around you. Stay well.
