Frontier handles carpet and upholstery after Ebola case


DENVER — The airplane that carried Ebola-infected, Dallas nurse, Amber Vinson, from Dallas to Cleveland on October 13 received a thorough cleaning from Frontier, the airline that owns the plane, according to an article from USA Today.

CDC only requires “special cleaning of upholstery, carpets, or storage compartments… [when] obviously dirty from blood or body fluid.”

Frontier, however, is going far beyond this — removing carpet and seat upholstery in the vicinity of Vinson’s seat and performing a total of four deep cleans on the rest of the plane.

Vinson, who cared for Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan before his death, flew from Dallas to Cleveland on October 13. The plane was sterilized per CDC standard requirements, and then was in regular use on October 14 before Vinson was diagnosed with Ebola, at which time Frontier took the plane out of service.
