TSA has installed new acrylic shields at Adirondack Regional Airport to help protect passengers and workforce from coronavirus

SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has installed new acrylic shields at the security checkpoint at Adirondack Regional Airport as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to implement initiatives to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The protective barriers have been installed in areas where TSA officers interact with passengers. This includes the travel document checking podium, the divesting areas where travelers prepare their carry-on property for X-ray screening, and the property search areas.

“The addition of these new shields at the checkpoint is an effort by TSA to reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination between travelers and TSA employees,” said Bart R. Johnson, TSA’s Federal Security Director for Upstate New York. “It is one of several initiatives that TSA has implemented to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.”

TSA continues to promote its “Stay Healthy. Stay Secure.” campaign designed to advise travelers of airport checkpoint modifications and procedures designed to contain the spread of COVID-19. These include social distancing, reduced physical contact between travelers and TSA officers during the screening process, use of personal protective equipment by TSA officers, and extra cleaning and disinfecting in the security checkpoint.

Travelers are reminded to wear a mask and follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel guidance as well as local and state advisories regarding COVID-19. For more information about the TSA response to COVID-19, please visit www.tsa.gov/coronavirus.
