Airports stay open during curfews

These crazy times are getting crazier. And scarier.

When the coronavirus pandemic began taking its toll on travel, it seemed odd that airports felt the need to send tweets reminding us that their facilities remained open. And to encourage and thank people for washing their hands.

But as the number of people traveling dipped dangerously low, it was reassuring to know airports remained opened because, like grocery stores and gas stations, they are essential services to our society.

Now, curfews are being imposed in many cities in an effort to regain order where rioting and looting are displacing the peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd.

And once again, airports are reminding – and reassuring – the public that these essential services remain open.
