Although most remaining mandatory mask rules in Ontario expired Saturday, those required at the Greater Sudbury Airport Terminal remain in place.
In a media release issued by the airport largely echoing another one released in March, it’s noted that the airport is governed by federal regulations that maintain COVID-related mandates.
The one change to airport regulations is that friends and family of passengers were welcomed to enter the terminal as of last month. Prior to that, only ticketed passengers and airport personnel were permitted in the airport terminal.
The Greater Sudbury Airport was awarded the Safe Travels Stamp by the Worldwide Travel & Tourism organization during the pandemic for meeting and exceeding international health standards.
With this badge of honour, Tourism Industry Association of Ontario president and CEO Beth Potter said that people will know the airport is “upholding the highest standards of health and safety and demonstrating they are adhering to the global health protocols issued by the World Travel and Tourism Council.”
