Delta, United, and Jet Blue will require all passengers to wear face coverings beginning today. Delta and JetBlue will make them mandatory from the time passengers check in through the time they deplane. United said it will provide the required face coverings to passengers and the new policy will also make masks compulsory for other front-line employees such as pilots, customer service agents and ramp workers. Flight attendants for these airlines are already wearing masks. What else is changing? More airports may use machines to check passengers for fever and security checkpoints may have plexi glass shields between passengers and screeners. Frontier Airlines has said it will enact the requirement on May 8 with Southwest to follow on May 11.
