Safety Bulletin

Room Lockdown During COVID 19 Pandemic

Dec 08, 2020


Public health authorities may require in-room lockdown for crew members on layovers. This complete lockdown may have detrimental effects on mental health, especially if the layover is long, and if further quarantine is required at home base regardless of isolation during layover. It is not expected that operators or pilot associations would be able to remove these authority requirements, this safety bulletin suggests some mitigating measures that could be recommended.
