Airport Service Alert
Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) is closely monitoring the COVID-19 coronavirus situation and following all directives and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Milwaukee Health Department. The health and safety of travelers and employees are always our top priorities. We have implemented protocols to maintain the health, safety, and well-being of all who use the airport.
These are the steps we have taken thus far and will continue to take:
- In partnership with our Airport partners and stakeholders, we will continue to share all relevant CDC recommendations with staff and travelers.
- We have enhanced the already robust cleaning and disinfecting of restroom facilities, common areas, and SuperSaver Parking shuttles.
- We are reminding all employees to follow proper hygiene practices, which include frequent hand washing, avoiding coughing/sneezing in the direction of others, and avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- We are reminding employees to stay home when they are not feeling well.
- We have added hand-sanitizing stations throughout the terminal.
What you need to know:
- Signs and symptoms: People who have confirmed COVID-19 infections have a range of symptoms, from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely sick. Symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath.
- Protecting yourself: To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses, clean hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and avoid contact with sick individuals. Stay home from work or school if you are sick or not feeling well.
- Testing for COVID-19: If you have recently traveled to an area with community spread or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 and has symptoms, please call your primary care provider.
- Self-Quarantining: Stay home, do not attend large gatherings or have large groups of people over at your home, postpone nonessential appointments, call ahead to your health care provider before going to the doctor’s office, minimize contact, and avoid sharing personal household items.
- Prevention and treatment: There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection, and there is currently no specific treatment. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
