A New Normal: FlyHealthy@SEA
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is preparing for the gradual reopening of our economy. This includes doubling down on cleaning. Measures being taken include frequent disinfection with medical-grade cleaning products with an emphasis on high-touch areas, and an additional 250 hand sanitizer stations throughout the terminal. Coming soon, bathrooms that aren’t already touchless will be converted, two hour cleaning at security checkpoints and deep cleaning TSA bins after hours, and electrostatic sprayers from Clorox and Victory will be added into their fleet of cleaning equipment. You can learn more at the Port of Seattle’s progress report.

Mt. Rainier was given its current name by Captain George Vancouver, in honor of a friend in the British Navy, Peter Rainier. As someone raised in Pierce County, I may occasionally refer to it as Mt. Tahoma!
