The safety and security of the traveling public and our employees is the top priority at Duluth International Airport (DLH). To that end, we are committed to helping contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Inside the airport terminals, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has provided Duluth International Airport with public health readiness measures. While following all CDC guidelines and recommendations, the Operations team is ensuring that the following actions are being executed:
- The CDC has provided guidance for local emergency medical service personnel responding to medical calls at the airport to help them assess and identify potentially infected travelers.
- We are communicating with our team early and often regarding all issues surrounding the virus and precautions that need to be taken.
- Our custodial provider is placing an additional emphasis on public touch points in all areas, including handrails, bathroom stalls, seating, door handles, chairs and tables, touchscreen directories, etc.
- Our custodial employees are wearing Personal Protective Equipment.
- CDC health alert signage is being placed throughout our facilities, specifically at the entrances of security checkpoints and in all restrooms.
All governing agencies agree that prevention is key. Practice everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alchohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
