Federal law requires wearing a compliant face covering in and on the airport premises. Refusing to wear a face covering is a violation, which can result in individuals being subject to penalties under law. Thank you for your cooperation.

La ley federal de los Estados Unidos requiere el uso de mascarillas (barbijos) en las partes internas y externas del aeropuerto; el incumplimiento de esta ley puede resultar en la expulsión del aeropuerto y el re-acceso al mismo.
Negarse a usar mascarillas (barbijos) en partes internas o externas del aeropuerto es una violación de la ley federal. Personas que se nieguen a usar mascarillas (barbijos) podrán ser penalizadas bajo esta ley.

TSA Coronavirus Updates Available at:
The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR) is monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and is working closely with our employees, tenants and airline partners to proactively reduce the risk of COVID-19 impacting our guests or our operations. American, Delta, and United continue to offer daily flights from BTR. While connections to some international destinations have been reduced or suspended, passengers can still connect to most destinations. The airlines have increased the frequency and intensity of aircraft cleaning, and they are fogging aircraft with disinfectant one or more times daily. Social distancing is being applied, including spacing for passenger seat assignments to the extent possible. Passengers are required to wear masks in the airport and on their flights. 

What we're doing

We have increased cleaning and sanitation efforts, particularly in all of our high-traffic, high-touch areas, and have added signage reminding travelers how to avoid the spread of germs. We are also placing additional hand sanitizers throughout the facilities to encourage use. The entire airport is fogged each night with a sanitizing solution. BTR requires that passengers wear masks in the terminal as required by the East Baton Rouge City Parish.
