Some travellers have shared their sightings of people wearing hazmat suits and face shields at Vancouver's YVR airport, expressing uncertainty about what might be going on.
However, YVR Airport tells Vancouver Is Awesome that the hazmat suits are not something to be concerned about and are actually a common sight.
It's actually a bit of ongoing precaution against the transmission of COVID-19.
"Some Asian carriers require that their crews wear hazmat suits out of extreme caution. Asian crews are seen in these hazmat suits at YVR relatively regularly," says a Vancouver Airport Authority spokesperson.
Don't be alarmed if you spot a hazmat-wearing crew on your next trip.
- Remember this? In early 2020, people were travelling with plastic containers on their heads at YVR
