Posted on May 08, 2020 in Media Releases
Travel guidelines and how we’re taking care of you.
We recommend the CDC’s website as a resource for ways travelers can best protect themselves from becoming ill. Additionally, guests of the airport are encouraged to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer and/or anti-bacterial wipes when traveling.
As a reminder, no person should board a flight when they are feeling ill as this could potentially put others at risk. Face coverings are not currently required, but encouraged, while visiting St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Please use social distancing while in the airport.
Your safety is our top priority. We appreciate your understanding and thank you.

Some of our tenants and airlines installed Plexiglas at ticket counters and concession areas and put out markers/signage noting 6 feet for social distancing requirements.
