Coronavirus Response

In support of public health initiatives to keep you safe, all airport visitors, passengers, and staff are required to wear a face mask while at the airport. A face mask is required in the Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Order: Requirement for Persons to Wear Masks While on Conveyances and at Transportation Hubs. Refusal to wear a face mask may result in penalties under federal law.

For questions on which masks are acceptable, read the CDC's Guide to Masks.
