Reno-Tahoe International Airport | COVID-19 Travel Info
While Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is not a gateway airport for non-stop arrivals from countries that are hard hit by the Coronavirus, the information below can help you travel through RNO, and other airports, in a safer way.
Reno-Tahoe International Airport actions
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) follows the guidance provided by public health experts at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), State of Nevada Department of Health and the Washoe County Health District. We are supporting federal agencies that operate at the airport.
While RNO has an excellent reputation for cleanliness, we are:
- Increasing our use of disinfectant and cleaning more frequently in what we call “high tough” areas at the airport, like handrails, escalators, elevator buttons, restroom doors, etc. with an emphasis where international travelers arrive. We are also working with our cleaning supply vendors to ensure the produces we use are effective against Coronavirus.
- Coordinating with our airline and tenant partners and employees to closely monitor any changes in the status of our region’s health.
- Encouraging employees and tenant employees to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer.
- The CDC, Customs and Border Protection Agency, RNO and other airport partners, have communicable disease response plans in place that are reviewed, practiced, and updated throughout the year.
How you can stay health
Public health officials recommend personal hygiene and frequent hand washing as the best way to prevent illness.
- Wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick and stay home when sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid non-essential travel to China, South Korea, Italy and other hard hit areas.
- Chick-in with your airline if you have questions about your travel itinerary.
- While not protective against novel coronavirus, public health officials also recommend the influenza vaccine. It’s not too late to get an influenza vaccine, since flu season can last into spring.
