Atlanta Regional Airport – Falcon Field said Thursday that one of its employees was being tested for coronavirus after having symptoms “consistent with those of Covid-19,” according to Hope Macaluso, airport manager.
However, “We are still providing all services, including fuel. We have only closed the main building to the general public. Airplanes can still land and take off as usual. In fact, we are experiencing a normal level of flights,” she said.
