Is it safe to travel?
Many states have implemented travel advisories encouraging residents not to travel unless it is necessary. In Massachusetts travel should be limited to only those with essential purposes. Airports across the nation, including Boston Logan, Worcester Regional, and Hanscom Airfield, have taken steps to ensure their facilities are safe, including increased cleaning, added signage, and new social distancing measures. Passengers and staff are also required to wear a face covering while inside Massport facilities.
How is social distancing being upheld at the security checkpoints?
We are working with our TSA partners to ensure the security experience remains safe and efficient for all passengers.

What additional measures are being taken regarding cleaning at the airport?
We have taken steps to increase sanitizing at all high-touch areas, including the bathrooms, walkways, baggage claim, and other areas both pre- and post-security. We have also added signage to remind passengers of general health tips and to create social distancing. Passengers and staff are also required to wear a face covering.
