Airport Updates/Advisories

Airport Updates and Advisories for Your Safety and Security

As of February 01, 2021, Federal law requires wearing a mask at all times in and on airport and failure to comply may result in removal and denial of re-entry. Refusing to wear a mask in or on the airport is a violation of federal law; individuals may be subject to penalties under federal law

At SRQ, we take the safety of our passengers and employees seriously. As part of the SRQ' “Fly Safe” program, three non-contact thermal temperature screening kiosks have been installed at SRQ. Kiosk use is voluntary, signage advises passengers with elevated body temperatures of 100.4 or more, not to travel and seek medical attention. Airport Authority employees are required to check their temperature, prior to their shift. 

SRQ and its airport partners continue to work to keep travelers safe by following CDC guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing all touchpoints. Increased janitorial staff have been added, hand sanitizing stations can be found throughout the terminal. Plexiglas shields and social distancing markers have been placed in queuing lines and gate areas. Face mask use is mandatory for all employees. The airport and airplanes are equipped with high grade air filters to purify the air and public address announcements are used to remind everyone to follow CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID 19.
