Fly Healthy through CVG Airport

CVG Airport takes health concerns seriously and is working closely with health professionals and airline partners to ensure the safety and well-being of our passengers and employees. Due to concerns with COVID-19, we continue to stay in close contact with public health officials to follow recommendations and best practices.

CVG Airport Cleaning Protocols 

CVG maintains a robust and thorough cleaning protocol for all our facilities. Here are just a few of the ways our team continues to keep public spaces clean.

  • Oxivir wipes used to wipe down hard surfaces and high-touch areas throughout the airport – doorknobs, restroom stall hardware, sinks, urinals, toilets, dispensers, diaper changing stations, gate seating, etc.
  • Regular sanitation of the trains in the transportation tunnel
  • Regular sanitation of the elevators, moving sidewalks, and escalators
  • Increased frequency and intensity of efforts to disinfect restrooms, food court, and other public areas with appropriate cleaning agents that kill germs
  • In early April, more than 25 new sanitizer dispensers were placed throughout CVG Airport, including the Terminal, the lower level Transportation Tunnel, and both Concourses.  While washing hands is still the preferred method, we want to ensure that both passengers and employees have easy access to clean hands throughout the airport.

The CDC has specific screening at 13 designated airports for passengers flying from designated international locations.  More info here. When warranted, CVG is following the protocols issued by public health authorities for proper passenger screening.

CVG, in partnership with local, state and federal officials, has infectious disease response plans in place that are regularly reviewed, practiced and updated throughout the year.

There are no domestic travel restrictions in effect at this time. Ohio and Indiana’s stay-at-home orders, as well as Kentucky Governor Beshear’s Executive Order of March 30, 2020, which discourages out-of-state travel, make various exceptions allowing for essential travel (for instance, if your employer requires you to travel for work). Consult your state’s travel guidance, and/or confirm with your employer if you need to travel. Passengers should refer to guidance from the CDC and other public health authorities regarding travel to areas with significant community transmission of COVID-19 and any self-isolation that might be required after you return home. You should also check with your airline about flight status before coming to CVG. See Resources section below for additional state specific information and other sources.
