Please be advised that we are closely monitoring reports on the novel coronavirus. Although Philippine Airlines does not operate flights to or from Wuhan, the city in China where the virus is reported to have originated, we are closely coordinating with the Philippine Department of Health and the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) along with other concerned health authorities, in taking sensible precautionary measures for the safety and protection of our passengers. This includes non-obtrusive screening at concerned airports.
We encourage our passengers to practice simple and sensible preventive measures advised by the BOQ and the World Health Organization (WHO):

1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water and use alcohol-based hand rub
2. Cover mouth with tissue when coughing/sneezing
3. Avoid close contact with anyone with colds or flu-like symptoms
4. Thoroughly cook eggs and meat
5. Avoid unprotected contact with wild or farm animals
6. Drink plenty of water
7. Use a face mask for added protection

Do not proceed with your trip if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Respiratory problems
- Cough and Colds
- Flu
- High Body Temperature
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty in breathing
Consult your doctor immediately.

We will continue to coordinate closely with the BOQ, the DOH and airport authorities to ensure that preventive measures remain well in place for the protection of both our passengers and flight/ ground crew.
