Delta Airlines ditches vaccine mandates for employees.

Delta’s CEO says they’re ditching the vaccine mandate for employees. Delta said about 90 percent of its 80,000-strong workforce had been vaccinated as of Monday as Delta continues to prioritize the health and safety of our people.

Delta continues to offer regular testing as an alternative, although it will impose a $200 monthly surcharge on unvaccinated employees enrolled in the company's health care plan from next month." A company that achieved a 90% vaccine rate without strong arming or threatening their employees with termination versus an incompetent government that could not think outside the box shows that private industry solves problems much better than big government. 

Delta Airlines is also the only airline to offer medical exemptions for masks. 3 year old got an exemption on a recent trip to Boston for his heart repair/surgery. They were incredibly accommodating to two parents already under a lot of stress. The 3 year old is now doing well. The family went there with 3 heart chambers and came home with 4 and a normal blood flow for the 1st time in his life. 

There’s no way a flight is anymore a hotspot than any single college/pro sports event, no more than they’ve ever been…Not one single documented case of a superspreader among thousands upon thousands of flights across the globe.

Effective from November 1, employees who have not been immunized against coronavirus will face a $200 increase in their monthly payments. Here’s another lawsuit waiting to happen when one of those employees shows just one vaccinated person got covid, if feels like discrimination. 

Research shows seven fatal accidents in the history of Delta airlines. Of course even one fatal accident is awful but when you consider the thousands and thousands of flights that entails, seems to me they're doing a fine job keeping people safe.
