Sacramento International Airport
(SMF) has added Clean & Safe Travels Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machines in both terminals for passengers traveling during the Covid-19 pandemic.
These machines are located pre-security in Terminal A (between Starbucks and the ticket counters), and Terminal B (at the west entrance near the Southwest Airlines ticket counter). In addition to the increased cleaning, ticket counter sneeze guards and social distancing messaging, SMF is utilizing these machines to promote precautions and increase safety for our passengers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Increasingly strong measures have been put into place to ensure travelers both see and feel that their health and safety is our top priority,” says Cindy Nichol, Sacramento County Director of Airports. “Installing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machines in the terminals is just one of many steps we have taken.”
Passengers can purchase a variety of protective masks ranging from $8.25 to $14.50, disposable gloves ($4.50), sanitizing wipes ($5.25) and hand sanitizer spray or gel ($4.25 to $6.50).
Although there is no requirement to wear face coverings in the terminals at SMF, passengers are strongly encouraged to do so in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. Additionally, most airlines have implemented policies requiring both employees and passengers to wear face coverings in boarding areas and on aircraft.
