Following an executive order for all residents of Orange County to wear face masks given the second wave of the coronavirus, Orlando International Airport has installed vending machines that contain a variety of personal protective equipment (PPE). The vending machines include a variety of face masks, hand sanitizers, and other small items to help promote safe travels and inhibit the spread of COVID-19.
“It is our top priority to make travelers and employees feel safe within our world-class airport,” stated Phil Brown, CEO of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. He explained that in order to do that, the airport must work hard to ensure that everyone has access to personal safety essentials.
The six Clean & Safe Travels vending machines have prices that start at $7.50 for two masks and are conveniently located in high touchpoint areas near the following airline ticket counters: JetBlue, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, United, and American Airlines.
The vending machines and their inventory have been placed in order to assist in efforts to comply with Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings’ order, which requires everyone in a public space to wear a face covering that meets current CDC guidelines. MCO is no exception to the rule, and travelers must be compliant and wear a face mask until the executive order is lifted. Along with the new vending machines, a number of retailers in the terminal have also made PPE supplies available to travelers for purchase.
