Hundreds of airlines employees have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days and that number is expected to continue rising, according to information released by multiple unions.

Around 100 American Airlines flight attendants and at least 600 Southwest employees tested positive for COVID-19, their respective unions say.

Additionally, a second AA flight attendant has died of the novel coronavirus, sources say. He was a St. Louis-based flight attendant.
AA said that "some" of their 130,000 employees had tested positive. The airline said "the safety of our customers and team members is our top priority," in a statement Tuesday.

Officials said they are working closely with public health officials to evaluate their health and safety measures.
