The Transportation Security Administration is installing full-height plastic barriers at 37 airports nationwide to protect security screeners and passengers from the spread of coronavirus.
COVID-19 has changed the security screening process for both TSA agents and passengers. Travelers must wear face masks, must maintain appropriate social distance, scan their own boarding passes and place food items in clear plastic bags. They can also bring as much as 12 ounces of hand sanitizer through security checkpoints.
The agency completed installing them at San Diego International Airport on Thursday, and will install more than 1,200 by the time the project will be completed in early fall.
