The Transportation Security Administration has set up a new section of its website dedicated to providing up to date information on the COVID-19 coronavirus.
One of the key features of the site is a map that highlights locations of airports where TSA officers have tested positive for the coronavirus.
“…we have established a map for the purpose of notifying the public about airports where TSA officers have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. TSA is working with the CDC and state and local health departments to monitor local situations as well as the health and safety of our employees and the traveling public. Impacted security checkpoints may close as needed, so you may be redirected to other security screening checkpoints at the airport. TSA officers remain dedicated to their mission to ensure that travelers can get to their destinations as safely and securely as possible,” reads a statement on the website.
There is also a table that lists details of each infected employee’s duty position, date of last day of work, and shift time to help travelers know if they may have come into contact with a person who has tested positive.
The Centers for Disease Control says that people who may have been in contact with a person who is known to have tested positive for the coronavirus should contact their healthcare provider for guidance, especially if they begin to develop any symptoms of the virus.
