In accordance with Governor Larry Hogan's Executive Order 20-07-29-01 (full text can be viewed by clicking here), the use of face masks or coverings is required at all times throughout BWI Marshall Airport. This Executive Order took effect on July 31, 2020 at 5pm and remains in effect today. Further, all of our airline partners have implemented a face mask or covering requirement.
In addition, TSA is implementing provisions of President Biden’s Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel. Effective February 2, 2021, TSA is requiring individuals to wear a mask at airport screening checkpoints and throughout public transportation systems. This federal order (click here to learn more) is consistent with our existing face covering requirements that were put in place in July as part of Governor Hogan's Executive Order 20-07-29-01.
We are distributing free cloth face coverings on a first-come, first-served basis at various locations throughout our main terminal. Distribution bins are located near all of our security checkpoints, plus at the Information Desk on our Upper Level between Spirit and United ticket counters. Each package contains multiple face coverings.
Staffed distribution also takes place at 3 Information Desks (Upper Level between Spirit and United counters, Lower Level between Baggage Claim belts 9-10 and 12-13) 7 days a week between 6am-2pm. These desks may be intermittently staffed at additional times throughout late afternoon and early evening.
In addition, those who wish to purchase a face covering or other PPE items (such as hand sanitizer, gloves, etc.) can do so at various retailers and PPE vending machines throughout the terminal and Rental Car Facility.
Please note: access to the BWI Marshall Airport terminal is restricted to ticketed passengers and badged employees.
