Airport Updates and Advisories for Your Safety and Security

With the intensification of the COVID-19 situation, the airport wanted to communicate to our customers what is being done in the terminal building to help prevent the spreading of COVID-19.
Besides the regular daily cleaning, our janitorial contractor has been instructed to perform additional wipe downs of heavily touched areas such as hand rails, door handles, card readers. They  have extra staff dedicated to these tasks and are using hospital grade disinfectants.
The terminal’s air conditioning system is also using hospital grade filters plus UV disinfection lights internally. The airport has ordered Purell stands that should arrive soon and will be placed in heavily traffic areas.
We have asked our airport tenants to also increase cleaning and wiping of critical areas in their leaseholds. The TSA screening checkpoint is being cleaned nightly, and the checkpoint staff has been actively doing extra wiping of items such as bins, tables and equipment. They also increased the use of gloves and the frequency of replacement.
