While BLI has an excellent reputation for cleanliness, we are:

  • Increasing our use of disinfectant and cleaning more frequently in what we call “high touch” areas at the airport, like handrails, restroom surfaces, water fountains, etc. We are also working with our cleaning supply vendors to ensure the products we use are effective against Coronavirus.
  • Coordinating with our airline and tenant partners and employees to closely monitor any change in the status of our region’s health.
  • Encouraging employees and tenant employees to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer.

How you can stay healthy

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.
  • Check-in with your airline if you have questions about your travel itinerary.
