COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Airport announced Wed. that beginning on July 6, all passengers, visitors, tenants, contractors and employees will be required to wear a mask or face covering while at the airport.
This is in accordance with Gov. Polis' latest Executive Order that required anyone entering a government facility to wear a face covering.
“The health and safety of our passengers and employees is our number one priority and along with the airlines and concessionaries, we believe face coverings will help protect the traveling public, as well as the employees at the Colorado Springs Airport,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation for the Colorado Springs Airport.
In addition to wearing masks, the airport offers the following recommendations on making travel easier and safer:
- Practice social distancing by keeping at least six feet between you and other people.
- Limit touch points by using a mobile boarding pass and carry on your luggage.
- If you’re sick, stay home. Do not enter the Airport if you are sick or have a cough.
- Arrive early to avoid line congestion.
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if you’re unable to wash your hands.
