Travelers who do not wear face masks will be asked to leave or denied entrance.

"We are grateful for the public's continued cooperation with mask requirements at the Eagle County airport," said David Reid, Director of Aviation, in a statement. "This Executive Order should serve as a reminder of just how seriously we are taking it. We understand that visitors and residents come and go through our airports and bus systems, but we ask that they do so in a manner that complies with the letter and spirit of public health guidance."
