The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is advising cabin crew to wear adult diapers as well as avoid using the toilet during flights to destinations with a higher risk of catching COVID-19.

The CAAC made the recommendations for destinations where the rate of infection for the Coronavirus is currently higher than 500 people per million, according to The Independent.

“It’s recommended that cabin crew wear disposable diapers and avoid using the lavatory unless in special circumstances to reduce the risk of infection,” the updated list of guidelines from the CAAC reads.

According to the guidelines, it is recommended that the plane also be divided into four zones; a sanitized zone, a buffer zone, a passenger zone, as well as a quarantine zone, with each zone separated by disposable curtains. The last three rows at the back of the plane are to be used as the quarantine zone. (RELATED: Massive Brawl Breaks Out On An Airplane Over The Mask Policy)

The guidelines from the CAAC also state that the airline crew’s mental health will be monitored and taken into consideration.

“Efforts shall be made to have an understanding of the mental health conditions of front-line crew members,” the CAAC guidelines read. “Duty scheduling for international flights shall be made after giving full consideration to crew members’ psychological conditions, personality, current family life pressures, social support system and other circumstances,” it adds.
