Facial Coverings Now Required at San Diego International Airport
Per the California Health and Safety Code sections 101040, 120175, and 120175.5 (b), facial coverings are now required at San Diego International Airport (SAN) for all passengers, visitors, tenants, contractors and employees while on airport property. As stated by the County of San Diego Health Officer, persons with a medical or mental health condition, or developmental disability that prevents wearing a face covering shall be exempt from this requirement. The mandate is to help curb the spread of novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
According to the California Department of Public Health, a cloth face covering is a material that covers the nose and mouth. It can be secured to the head with ties or straps or simply wrapped around the lower face. It can be made of a variety of materials, such as cotton, silk, or linen. A cloth face covering may be factory-made or sewn by hand, or can be improvised from household items such as scarfs, T-shirts, sweatshirts, or towels.
