We're ready when you are
In light of COVID-19 and a heightened concern for public health, TPA has launched an Airport-wide effort dubbed “TPA Ready” to implement best practices designed to slow or stop the spread of germs and viruses. The Airport is also strongly urging passengers and guests to modify behaviors and follow guidelines designed to keep themselves and others healthy and safe.
Effective Friday, June 19 at 5 p.m. by Executive Order of the Mayor of Tampa, face coverings are required for all passengers and guests must wear face masks while at the Airport in any capacity. Read the order here for details and exceptions.
Do I need to self-quarantine when traveling to Florida?
Visitors from outbreak hot spots, such as New York State, Connecticut and New Jersey, are required by the state of Florida to self-quarantine for 14 days. For the latest details, please visit the Florida Department of Health.
Is there any international travel nonstop to Tampa Airport?
What sort of screening is there when I land?
The Florida Department of Health is screening passengers from certain destinations in compliance from orders from Gov. Ron DeSantis. For additional information, please visit the Florida Department of Health.
What testing/screening is there for departing passengers?
TPA offers convenient testing services for departing and arriving passengers right on the premises. For more information on our partnership with BayCare Health System and COVID-19 testing, go to: https://baycare.org/TPA-Testing.
Can I bring hand sanitizer through TSA?
TSA is currently allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container, up to 12 ounces per passenger, in carry-on bags until further notice. Since these containers exceed the standard 3.4-ounce allowance typically permitted through a checkpoint, they will need to be screened separately.
