Employees of DFW Airport and its Tenants Requesting Paid Time Leave For Workers Who CDC Considers High Risk of Complication From COVID-19 or At Least No Job Termination If Those Workers Want To Stay Home Taking Extended Periods of Leave During the Outbreak

There are multiple workers at DFW employed by DFW Airport or its tenants who CDC considers are at high risk for serious illness from COVID-19 as outlined here: CDC Link

We, the undersigned individuals, ask that DFW Airport, and its tenants who employ these high risk individuals be given Paid Time Leave for extended periods of time and/or at least make arrangements for these individuals to be able to stay home at least until the peak period has passed.

This will not just help save lives of these high-risk individuals, but will also decrease the demand for public healthcare, thereby saving multiple lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

If any such at-risk individual working inside the DFW Airport has decided to stay home because of COVID-19 fears, and one of the tenant companies has terminated their job, such an individual must also be reinstated their job and given same treatment as other individuals who are given waivers for extended leave due to high-risk factors.

Given that airports are considered high-risk areas for contracting Covid-19 virus, possibly being one of the #1 places where the Covid-19 virus can spread, and the recent news about TSA agents testing positive, an American Airlines pilot testing positive, and reports that COVID-19 patients are still flying, we request DFW airport, and its tenants to immediately take this action that can save lives of multiple people.
