COVID-19 Update

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport encourages all travelers to make themselves aware of the health and safety protocols established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, with regards to COVID-19. Should you have questions or concerns about the coronavirus, please consult the following:

The CDC encourages all travelers to follow these recommendations:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing, going to the bathroom, and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue; then throw the tissue in the trash.

Enhanced Cleanings at MHT

As part of our commitment to passengers, we have increased cleanings of restrooms and surfaces frequently touched by passengers, including the TSA security checkpoint and bins. All areas are disinfected on a regular basis using EPA-approved disinfectants and electrostatic cleaners. MHT has also deployed public health guidance PSAs in terminal bathrooms and public areas, advising passengers on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
