COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– The Colorado Springs Airport (COS) was the recipient of a Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR grant for $2,375 from GOJO Industries, the makers of PURELL products. The grant will help demonstrate the airport’s commitment to the health and safety of travelers. COS was one of only 11 airports in the country to receive the grant.
“This grant will ensure COS will maintain its high standards of cleaning and disinfection and continue to keep our travelers safe,” said Sonja Sutherland, Airport Maintenance Manager for COS.
In April of this year, COS became an accredited GBAC STAR Facility. GBAC STAR is a performance-based accreditation program that demonstrates that airport facilities have put in place the work practices, procedures, and protocols to prepare, respond, and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.
“The team of attendants at COS have gone above and beyond to ensure our airport is a place where our community, employees and tenants can feel safe and where the highest standards for sanitation and cleanliness are in place,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation for COS.
