Delta to maintain social distancing while many other airlines end COVID-19 safety measures
DETROIT Delta Airlines announced it will continue to enforce social distancing rules while many other airlines throw out their safety measures despite coronavirus (COVID-19) cases spiking around the country. Delta is one of the few commercial carries still enforcing social distancing rules onboard planes and selling fewer seats in order to keep passengers and crew members said. The airline made the announcement that those rules will continue for the next few months.
