    Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly Tests Positive For Coronavirus After Senate Hearing

    Southwest Airlines chief executive Gary Kelly tested positive for the coronavirus, the company announced Friday, two days after he testified at a Senate hearing in Washington.

    Kelly sat beside senior executives from competing airlines and a top labor leader, none of whom wore masks while facing questions from members of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.

    SOUTHWEST SAID KELLY, WHO WAS VACCINATED AND HAD RECEIVED A BOOSTER, TESTED NEGATIVE MULTIPLE TIMES BEFORE THE HEARING, BUT TESTED POSITIVE AFTER GETTING HOME.

    He has mild symptoms and “each day he is moving closer to a full recovery”, the airline said, adding that he is “following all notification procedures”.

    Among those who received word was Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, who sat three seats away during the hearing.

    “I was advised by Gary Kelly shortly after he tested positive and, ironically, just as I was returning to work after getting the booster shot,” said Nelson, whose union represents nearly 50,000 flight attendants.

    Nelson said she is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocols and will test several times over the next week before traveling with family for the holidays.

    Senate officials did not immediately respond to questions about exposure concerns. Southwest did not say when or how Kelly believes he was exposed.

    “SOUTHWEST SAID KELLY, WHO WAS VACCINATED AND HAD RECEIVED A BOOSTER, TESTED NEGATIVE MULTIPLE TIMES BEFORE THE HEARING, BUT TESTED POSITIVE AFTER GETTING HOME.”

    I have got a question:

    Did all the delegates travel on the same iron bird to get to the Senate Hearing and the return flight to get home??

    Given the reckless manner that the USA is hobbling along – I would pay attention to a sane Canadian Government Travel Advisory.

      Agreed. Airlines should be tasked with testing, quarantine, etc., if they want to to continue flying. Tax payers should not be on the hook for others making stupid choices.

    I am not sure these idiots know what they are doing, nothing but confusion day in day out…
    Ontario’s ‘top doctor’ says double-vaxxed people should stay away from triple-vaxxed relatives
    A reporter asked Moore, “as a twice-vaccinated person with no symptoms of COVID-19, should I feel safe or feel it’s worth the risk to see a grandparent who has had three vaccine shots over the holidays?”

    “I personally would advise you to avoid social contact with anyone older even with two doses,” Moore answered. “If you are going to interact I would do it outdoors with masking and distancing in place. I hope the weather stays reasonable across Ontario to enable that.”
    Heaven help us, being led by fools.
