What are the cleaning procedures at SAN?
Our custodial provider is providing cleaning services 24-hours a day. They are placing an additional emphasis on public touchpoints in all areas, including handrails, bathroom stalls, seating, door handles, chairs and tables, touchscreen directories, concessions, and credit card machines. Further, in our parking lot and rental car shuttles, we are sanitizing seats, rails, and other surfaces several times daily, in addition to performing a deep clean twice weekly. We also use electrostatic spraying to disinfect and sanitize services.
What about air circulation in the terminals?
All HVAC systems at SAN were designed to meet the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers standards for ventilation for indoor air quality. Our systems meet or exceed industry filtration standards, meaning we filter the air at a recommended level between “Superior Commercial Buildings” and “Hospital Inpatient Care.” Additionally, 60 percent of air handlers installed in the airport contain ultraviolet light which provides extra protection to kill bacteria and viruses.

Do I have to have a negative COVID-19 test to fly?
If you are traveling domestically, you are not required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test. If you are traveling internationally, the CDC requires passengers flying into the United States to have proof of a negative COVID test, or that they’ve recovered from COVID, provided to the airline one day before the flight departs. You can read more about the requirement here. We recommend checking with the city, county, and state as well as your airline for more information on what is required.
