AMPORTS COVID-19: Facility Visitor Guidance
Amports is taking every step possible to protect all our visitors and staff from the spread of COVID-19. We are performing daily cleaning and disinfecting of work areas and vehicles, maintaining social distancing, performing proper hand hygiene, and wearing a face covering to help prevent the spread.
Another step in this process is performing temporal temperature screening for all visitors and staff prior to facility entrance. Taking someone’s temperature is considered a medical exam under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and would normally be subject to strict restrictions. However, the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) has expressly stated in their updated guidance that businesses are permitted to screen visitors and staff for fevers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Amports will ensure that all communication and interaction between the visitor and the screener are private and should not be seen or heard by any other individual. Amports shall have the visitor who does not pass the screening process move their vehicle to a pre-determined separate location and remain in their vehicle until provided with further instructions.
A visitor who has a fever at or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or who is experiencing coughing or shortness of breath will be denied entry. Anyone refusing required testing will be denied entry into the facility. Please if you feel sick or have been in contact with someone that has tested positive stay home and contact your physician.
Amports will continue to closely monitor and update all local and state mandates and will also follow and enforce all CDC COVID-19 recommended protocols. Please assist Amports by following those protocols.
• Completing the COVID-19 Terminal Entrance Evaluation Questionnaire
• Temperature screening prior to facility entrance
• Wearing a facial covering, covering the nose and mouth completely
• Maintaining social distancing
• Proper hand hygiene

California, Solano County Department of Public Health – Effective Jan 6, 2021
On January 6, 2021, the California Department of Public Health issued a revised Travel Advisory that supersedes the previous Travel Advisory issued on November 13, 2020. This advisory affects all counties in California. To prevent further spread of COVID-19 and help contain any new sources of infection, Californians should stay within 120 miles from their home or other place of residence, unless they are traveling for essential purposes. Essential travel includes work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security. Traveling into California from other states or countries for tourism or recreation is also strongly discouraged. Anyone traveling into California should self-quarantine for 10 days, unless quarantining is impracticable, and the travel is for the sole purpose of meeting critical healthcare needs or other emergency response.
