COVID-19 requirements at Greater Sudbury Airport will remain in place into the foreseeable future, despite many restrictions being lifted locally and provincially.
Airport officials issued a news release on March 28 as a reminder that airports are governed by federal regulations.
“Masking continues to be required at all times for our passengers, airport personnel and contractors to enter the airport terminal, along with proof of vaccination," said Jean-Mathieu Chenier, the airport's director of marketing, airport excellence and innovation.
“We want the public to be informed that when they come to the Greater Sudbury Airport, they should arrive with their approved face mask and proof of vaccination.”
Only ticketed passengers and airport personnel are permitted in the airport terminal, said the release. Friends and family are still being asked to remain at their vehicles while waiting for their passenger’s arrival.
The Greater Sudbury Airport was awarded the Safe Travels Stamp by the Worldwide Travel & Tourism organization during the pandemic, for meeting and exceeding international health standards, said the release.
