COVID-19 Response and FAQs

The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) has been working aggressively to help keep the traveling public and MSP employees safe from the COVID-19 virus (the strain of the latest coronavirus outbreak).

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), which owns and operates MSP, is in daily contact with its many partners – the local Centers for Disease Control (CDC),  the Minnesota Department of Health, airlines, Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Customs and Border Protection – to ensure MSP remains open and operating safely.

The MAC has ramped up cleaning and disinfecting procedures for MSP touchpoints throughout Terminals 1 and 2. Our cleaning partner, Marsden, has established a formal COVID-19 response team and microbial remediation plan and is disinfecting touchpoints throughout public spaces. Enhanced focus areas include high-use restrooms, terminal seating, public handrails and food courts.

In addition, Marsden is conducting an extra disinfection of public spaces throughout MSP, and hand sanitizers have been placed in many high-traffic locations throughout Terminals 1 and 2.

We will be updating MyMSPconnect regularly as new information becomes available. So please check back.

  • Staying home if you are sick
  • Staying 6 feet away from other people at all times - called social distancing
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick 
  • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue – then throwing it out
  • Washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds
  • Using an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
