Prince George's airport has announced precautions it's taking during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. 

“The safety of our employees, tenants and travelling public is of utmost importance and we are doing everything we can to stay on top of this,” Prince George Airport Authority (PGAA) President and CEO Gordon Duke says in a news release.

“The janitorial team has implemented their high touch point cleaning program, and the PGAA has posted additional signage and installed numerous hand sanitizing stations in the public and employee areas.”

The airport adds it continues to follow the guidelines provided by public health officials including the World Health Organization, Public Health Agency of Canada and the regional health authority.

"The PGAA has reviewed our pandemic plans and aircraft isolation procedures in response to the possibility of COVID-19 materializing in our region," the release states.

"We are also in discussions with our suppliers to ensure critical products are available, allowing the airport to remain fully operational."

The authority says it has also reached out to airline partners to review potential scenarios to make sure all of its actions maintain the safety of employees and the travelling public. 

If you need to make changes to your flights, you are asked to contact airlines directly. 

“We are starting to see a backlog of people coming to YXS to make changes to their flights which is impacting day to day operations," Duke says.
