United Airlines  (UAL) - Get Report will start to collect contact information from passengers when they check-in for their flights, as part of an effort by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

The program will be voluntary and will be used to help curb the spread of COVID-19 within the United States.

"Contact tracing is a fundamental component of the nation's public health response strategy for controlling the spread of communicable diseases of public health concern," said CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield in a statement with United. "Collection of contact information from air travelers will greatly improve the timeliness and completeness of information for COVID-19 public health follow-up and contact tracing."
