[Letter from Bennie G. Thompson to Chad F. Wolf Regarding DHS Temperature Check Program, June 16, 2020]   [open pdf - 236KB]

From the Document: "I write to express my concern over reports that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing to commence a temperature check program. Reportedly, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would be tasked to begin checking temperatures of departing passengers at U.S. airports to identify individuals who may have COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Additionally, the Committee was informed that DHS's Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) ran a week-long pilot at Dulles International Airport in April to test varying thermal detection technologies in anticipation of widespread temperature checks at U.S. airports. Given these developments, we have some questions for you regarding DHS's efforts and future plans regarding an airport-based federal temperature check program."
