The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has unveiled a list of airports where employees tested positive for COVID-19.
While airports in Mississippi are not on the list, the TSA has confirmed airports in two neighboring states had infected employees; Louis Armstrong New Orleans International and Nashville International. The TSA has provided the list to help travelers determine whether they may have been exposed.
Confirmed Cases Within the Past 14 Days (Information provided by the TSA as of Monday, March 30th)
TSA understands that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is on the minds of travelers and the general public. That is why 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. CDC recommends that post-exposure health management measures for asymptomatic exposed individuals continue until 14 days after the last potential exposure.
In the past 14 days across the nation, there are 56 TSA screening officers who have tested positive for COVID-19. In addition, 22 non-screening employees who have relatively limited interaction with the traveling public, have tested positive for the virus over the same period.
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.
