Medical Screening a Must for Passengers to Fly Without Mask: Delta

TUESDAY, July 21, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Delta airline passengers who say they can't wear a mask due to health conditions will have to undergo a medical screening before being allowed on a flight, the airline announced Monday.

The examinations will be conducted over the phone and could take an hour or longer, CBS News reported.

People who are caught making "false claims of a disability" to avoid wearing a mask will be barred from flying on Delta for as long as masks are required, the airline warned.

Passengers on most major U.S. airlines are now required to wear masks, but enforcement has been uneven, CBS News reported.
