In a recent article from Bloomberg Businessweek about how airports are looking to take precautions against the deadly Ebola virus,  O’Neill and Associates Senior Vice President Peter Goelz said any new policies have to go beyond what’s expected from flight attendants confronted with an ill passenger. Current standards from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for handling possibly infectious body fluids have worked so far, “but I sense it wouldn’t take too much to push it over the edge, for people to say, ‘Wait a minute. Is this enough?’ Goelz said. ‘‘What are we doing to protect our flight crews?’’

Goelz’s comments also appeared in the Chicago Tribune and South China Morning Post.
