To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure social distancing occurs at airports in England.
7 April 2020
The Government has provided clear instructions to the public and to businesses on the steps they need to take to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including new guidance on social distancing. Most importantly, we are reiterating that it is paramount for all transport sector employers and staff to follow Public Health England’s advice on health and safety in the workplace in light of COVID-19.
Airports are following PHE advice, as well as their existing internal protocols on preventing the spread of infectious diseases. Additionally, PHE has provided specific guidance to flight crews on the measures they need to take to keep themselves and the public safe, including advice on social distancing and the safe use of personal protective equipment.
