News and notes from around the interweb:
- The hoops Southwest makes you go through for a mask exemption before President Biden made masks a federal requirement there were no exemptions on Southwest, now they have to offer one, but they don’t make it easy.
Along with requiring a pre-travel questionnaire at least seven days before departure and written proof of their medical exemption from a physician, passengers will also need to obtain a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test certificate within 72-hours of departure and undergo a private medical screening with a third-party medical provider.
Once a passenger has jumped through those hoops, Southwest Airlines will still refuse to board them if the flight is booked to 50 per cent capacity or more. Even on a near-empty flight, an exempt passenger may still be refused boarding if there is more than one exempt passenger booked on the same flight.
