Hollywood Burbank Airport announced Monday that a ground support employee who works as a ramp agent handling luggage tested positive for coronavirus. The individual is “recovering at home and doing well,” according to a statement from the airport.

As of 8 a.m. Monday, airport representatives have not yet responded to our requests for more information about what’s being done to protect other employees.

On its website, the airport has further information about steps being taken to keep the virus at bay. Most of those include ramped up cleaning procedures and increased availability of cleaning supplies.
