Sunday, March 22, 2020

Concord, North Carolina: Beginning Sunday, March 22, The City of Concord is taking an advanced step in precautionary measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In a continued partnership with the Cabarrus Health Alliance, both organizations hope to limit the number of exposures due to travel in Cabarrus County.

As passengers arrive at Concord-Padgett Regional Airport (USA), before they come into a public area, certified nursing staff will be taking temperatures using a no-touch forehead thermometer to determine if COVID-19 precautionary measures should be considered.

If passengers exhibit symptoms, they will be given appropriate medical attention and directed to their primary care physician or the nearest provider.

If passengers are well, they will be asked to go directly to the restroom to wash their hands thoroughly before greeting those waiting for them at arrivals.

Concord-Padgett Regional Airport and Cabarrus Health Alliance are taking every precaution to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff and travelers arriving into Cabarrus County. We ask that you do the same by following the verified guidance and advice from trusted resources, such as those below.
