COVID-19 Procedures

Warsaw Chopin Airport implements good, consistent checks of customer temperatures at the terminal entrances, but this is causing congestion as staff are occasionally having to stop passengers to register the correct reading. Internally, there is consistent COVID-19 signage and information, but the size, positioning and design are not as optimised or clear as airports delivering 4 or 5-star. While the airport provides hand sanitiser, the volumes are comparatively low in high-movement and contact areas, and the units provided are of varying design, utility, and prominence. Social distancing is not actively managed, and this is mainly flagged as an issue at check-in. Social distancing markings are provided in queuing areas and some walkways, but the colouring means that these are not overly prominent. Distance markings are also given on seats, but the format varies slightly around the terminal. Generally, COVID-19 information and markers are given in a range of designs and colours, and this lacks coherence around the airport. Terminal cleanliness is reasonably good, but ATP testing in toilets, seating areas, and F&B outlets suggest this could be more thorough. There were concerns with the expediency of table clearance and sanitisation of tables in come café outlets with a high-turnover of customers. This is much better monitored for sit-down dining outlets.
