Atlanta Coronavirus Travel Guidelines October 2020: All You Should Know
Earlier this year, when the entire country was affected by the rise in COVID-19 cases, Georgia followed one of the most robust and most effective plans to combat the outbreak. For the most part, it was able to curb the spread of the disease. However, in summer 2020, we saw a sudden surge in COVID-19 numbers. This called for a reform in the travel restrictions in the state.
On September 30th, 2020, Governor Kemp signed executive orders to extend the public health of emergency until November 1st, 2020. In this vein, the travel industry has come together to follow safety and health guidelines, improving travel in the city.
Here’s all you need to know about coronavirus travel guidelines on your visit to Atlanta in October 2020:
The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to implement high-grade sanitizing and disinfecting services at their facility. The airport staff has increased the frequency of cleaning public spaces, offers hand sanitizers to travelers at various checkpoints, and screens them for any signs of COVID-19. The use of environmentally-friendly disinfectants is also a positive move toward ensuring cleanliness and environmental safety in the airport.
If you plan on staying at a hotel during your visit to the city, it’s helpful to know that the American Hotel & Lodging Association has introduced a Stay Safe initiative to improve industry-wide cleaning standards. The updated operational procedures focus on expanding safety measures to restrict the spread of the virus.
