COVID-19 Response Efforts at CWA

What We're Doing

The safety and health of our passengers, visitors and employees has always been our number one priority.  With the growing concerns of travelers, we want to ensure all passengers and airport visitors that we are proactively working to reduce the potential risk of exposure within the airport.  Our maintenance staff have always made cleanliness a priority and will concentrate efforts even more by completing additional thorough cleanings and paying more frequent attention to heavy touch points.  Hand sanitizing stations have been installed in prioritized areas throughout the facility. The Central Wisconsin Airport is staying connected to state and federal partners as they monitor the virus and will update this page as changes happen.

Face Mask Mandate

The federal mask mandate is no longer in effect.  Face masks are not required in the airport terminal, nor are they required for domestic travel with CWA's air carriers.  If traveling to an international destination, check with your airline if a mask will be required.  Some international destinations do have a mask mandate in place.

Airline Service

As of recently, airline schedules have been understandably reduced.  If you have a question pertaining to your flight,  please contact your airline directly.

Whats The Risk?

Several recent studies have been published regarding the potential risk of COVID transmission during a flight.  The first is from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), who published a press release on their study that may be viewed here.  The second is a landmark study from the Department of Defense and United Airlines, who partnered to conduct 300 tests over a six month period that ended with some amazingly good results.  That study may be viewed here.

What You Can Do

We can all do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. Practice social distancing and good hygiene by washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and minimize touching your face.
