As the Truckee Tahoe Airport District continues to monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we wanted to share with you the precautions and operational modifications we are making to assure the health and safety of our staff, customers, and constituents.
The Airport District's number one priority is the health and safety of our employees, customers, and community. We have stepped up our efforts to clean and sanitize the airport terminal building daily and are substantially limiting the number and type of meetings in our public meeting rooms. All non-governmental meetings are cancelled in our public meeting rooms until April 3rd. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope we can make these facilities available as soon as possible.
In an effort to protect our staff and community we are asking that employees conduct all meetings via teleconference or by phone and to limit all business and personal visitation to the airport. The Airport Terminal remains open to the public. The Red Truck restaurant is closed until further notice as of 3/25/2020.
The April 22nd Board of Directors meeting will be held via teleconference only. You can find the agenda at: https://truckeetahoeairport.com/administration/board/meetings. The April 7, 2020 and May 5, 2020 ACAT meetings have been cancelled.
As the situation continues to evolve, so will our response. We will continue to provide updates and communication on our website and social media platforms. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (530) 587-4119 x107 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
