When exiting the terminal traps of Terminal F, special coatings are impregnated with a disinfectant for handling passenger shoes.

On board the aircraft, the condition of passengers is monitored by Rospotrebnadzor employees using portable thermal imagers.
Stationary thermal imagers are located in the arrivals area, with the help of which Rospotrebnadzor experts carry out total temperature control of arriving passengers.
In the baggage claim area, an additional check, questioning of passengers by employees of the Moscow Department of Health, the Ministry of Health of the Moscow Region, and Rospotrebnadzor should follow.
