The airport continues to take proactive steps to make customers feel safe and comfortable in our terminals. This includes increased disinfection and cleaning of restrooms and shuttle buses, along with frequently touched surfaces such as ticket counters and kiosks, gate areas, handrails and doorknobs. Our air carriers are also increasing cleaning measures.

Health experts recommend frequently washing your hands and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth – as the best ways to prevent illness.
