The virus is flying around

Re: Poll: new virus restrictions

The reason I voted no with the new restrictions (poll) announced by Dr. Henry (Thursday, Nov.19) is the hypocrisy of both the federal and provincial governments. On one hand they want to basically have the country(province) to be in a lockdown. On the other, they are basically being a superspreader Covid-19 by allowing infectious people to fly thru the air.

It seems that there at least two covid-19 warnings a week. Why isn't the federal and provincial governments and health officers telling the airlines to make sure that their passengers are not being superspreaders? Why hasn't the chief health officer of Canada and the provincial health officers not recommending to their respective employers to either put in place rigorous protocols or shutting down airlines to flatten this present curve of infections.
