Coronavirus Response

DSM is committed to safety.  With that in mind, we have adjusted our safety operations and continue to update procedures to keep employees and travelers safe during the pandemic.  DSM is following guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Iowa Department of Public Health, and industry leaders to minimize the spread of COVID-19 at the airport.  Here are several measures we have implemented to keep our facility clean and to maximize opportunities for safety.
