County of Humboldt Joint Information Center release:
The California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV) and the county’s five general aviation airports continue to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Aviation staff are working diligently with the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Branch, United Airlines and travelers who rely on our airport to try to minimize impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak,” said Director of Aviation Cody Roggatz. “We have provided additional hand-washing stations, hand-sanitizing pumps and implemented additional cleaning measures at the ACV Terminal, as the health and safety of our travelers and staff remains our top priority.”

- Only essential air travel should be conducted. Consider canceling or postponing non-essential air travel as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
