In the current circumstances, only travellers and persons accompanying passengers with reduced mobility or minors travelling alone are admitted to the terminal. 

Are you coming to pick up someone? In that case, you had best arrange to meet on the curb outside the terminal. Are you meeting someone in the car park? No problem! Make sure to specify the car park you’ll meet in as well as the level.
