I am getting a lot of information about health assessment before my flight. Is this important?
EASA has recommended that airlines and airports inform passengers of the various COVID-19 measures before they leave for the airport. In particular, this includes the very important information that you should not even come to the airport if you have COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19, have been in recent contact with someone who is infected or are in quarantine. Symptoms associated with COVID-19:
- Fever or chills,
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,
- Muscle or body aches,
- New loss of taste or smell,
- Sore throat,
- Congestion or runny nose,
- Nausea or vomiting,
If you have COVID-19 compatible symptoms, don’t come to the airport regardless if you are vaccinated or not, or if you have recovered from COVID-19 , unless you have a negative RADT or RT-PCR test performed within the last 24 hours. Self-administered tests will not be accepted.
