March 3. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has stepped up its preparation for the typically busy Spring Break travel period.
Running between late February and April, TSA officers will be implementing technology that reduces physical touch points, adding employees to meet possible increasing passenger volumes and vaccinating officers and personnel engaging directly with the public.
To help protect travelers who take to the skies this spring, the TSA is reminding passengers of coronavirus precautions that remain in place across the United States, including mandatory facial coverings, social distancing, acrylic barriers, routine disinfecting protocols and more.
Last month, nearly four million passengers went through TSA checkpoints at U.S. airports for the four-day Valentine’s Day-Presidents’ Day period between February 11 and February 14, despite yet another holiday warning by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
