ENHANCED CLEANING PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE 03/12/20

  • Regularly wash your hands, and use hand sanitizer frequently, and avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose. The CDC recommends washing your hands with water and soap for a duration of 20 seconds, rubbing and lathering the backs of the hands, between your fingers and under your nails. In order to effectively time out 20 seconds while washing your hands, you can hum or sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice from beginning to end.
  • Routinely/throughout the day, disinfect all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, countertops, doorknobs, and telephones. In addition, there is an additional emphasis being placed on the cleaning and disinfection of “Touchpoints” to protect the health and safety of our pilots tenants, and visitors. Examples of public “Touchpoints” are door handles, flush valves, faucets and counters tops.
  • The CDC recommends that workers use cleaning agents that are usually used in these areas and follow the directions on the label. Use disposable wipes if possible so that commonly used surfaces can be wiped down before each use.
  • Employees that have fever, signs of a fever and/or any other respiratory symptoms (coughing, sneezing, cold-like symptoms) are REQUIRED to STAY HOME and not come to work until they are free of fever and other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines. 
  • These measures are effective until advised by COVID 19 working group.

Wi-Fi access is available in and around the Ocean City Airport terminal.
