Family members of mine are flying into Newark airport (from a different state), and I would like to go meet them along with my children. Are we allowed to meet them inside the arrivals terminal / baggage claim area? I can't figure out if that's prohibited due to COVID-19 policy or if it's still allowed.

  • If you are willing to put the effort in, you can even meet them at the gate: buy fully reimbursable tickets, go inside, cancel the tickets…

There are no relevant covid-related restrictions preventing people from entering the landside areas of Newark Airport, but do note that you are required to wear a face covering at all times while inside the terminal.
