On Tuesday night, six flight attendants working for Atlantic Airways were put in quarantine after one of them tested positive for COVID-19.
The infected flight attendant contracted the disease in Denmark, and they were in contact with five other flight attendants, who have been placed in quarantine also.
But travellers have nothing to fear, says Jóhanna á Bergi, the airline’s CEO.
– The flight attendants haven’t been at work since the case was confirmed. We take all necessary precautions, and the chief medical officer has been involved, she tells Kringvarp Føroya.
The flight schedule will not be affected.
