COVID 19 UPDATES

Below is information on what the airport is doing:

Social Distancing in the TSA Line:
 
Working with TSA, we have made some adjustments to the lines as you approach the security checkpoints to provide more space between the lines of passengers. In order to provide additional space between the passengers in front of you and behind you, we ask everyone to practice social distancing and spread out rather than crowd other passengers nearby.

What is RDM Doing to Protect Passengers and Employees:
  • Increased the frequency and intensity of efforts to disinfect restrooms and other public areas with cleaning agents intended to kill germs.

  • Airlines have increased the frequency and intensity of efforts to disinfect aircraft and their facilities. 

  • The Administration Office is closed to public access.  For continuity of operation, Airport Administrative staff is separating each department into two groups.  While the first group works onsite, observing social distancing guidelines, the second group will telework from home.  The two groups will rotate weekly.  

  • Multiple Hand Sanitizer Stations throughout the Terminal.
Travel Restrictions:
 
It’s important to be aware of the CDC's current travel advisories. CDC recommends that older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions should consider postponing nonessential travel to most global destinations. To date, we have not received any information about domestic travel restrictions.
 
Passenger Traffic at RDM:
 
As airlines continue to reduce their flight schedules, RDM has experienced a significant reduction in passenger traffic. We are now seeing passenger traffic at approximately 90% less than normal. 
 
However, despite these reductions, the airport is still open and flights are still operating.

Voluntary Self-Quarantine Request at RDM:

With a surge in cases expected to intensify later this month, officials across the region are urging people to take steps to reduce the spread of contamination to alleviate pressures on our hospitals.  Consistent with this approach, the City of Redmond owned Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) is encouraging all airport passengers to do a 14-day in-home self-quarantine upon arrival in Central Oregon. 

Individuals who develop symptoms during their voluntary self-quarantine should contact their medical provider immediately.  For general questions about the virus and/or symptoms call the free COVID-19 non-emergency hotline at 541-699-5109, open from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. The hotline connects callers with caregivers and county health professionals.
