  • Requesting that only travellers with a valid ticket and employees enter YVR.
  • Increasing cleaning across all high-touch areas.
  • Providing additional hand sanitizer throughout the airport.
  • Installing plexiglass at counters.
  • Placing TAKEcare team members at key locations throughout the airport.
