Sky Harbor Airport To Implement Mandatory Face Mask Policy

Sky Harbor International Airport

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is implementing a mandatory face mask policy starting June 1 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Airport officials announced Wednesday that employees and all visitors to Sky Harbor facilities will be required to have their noses and mouths covered while in the terminals, at the rental car center, the PHX Sky Train and airport buses. Sky Harbor officials say travelers are being asked to bring their own masks although some stores at the city-run airport currently are selling them. They say face masks can be a homemade cloth mask or even a bandanna with the only requirement is that it covers the face and nose. Sky Harbors officials say its “vigilant sanitation efforts” and “thorough 24-hour cleaning schedule” will remain in place.
