From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 1893, the 'Transportation Security Preparedness Act of 2021' requires the Transportation Security Administration (TSA or Administration) to survey its workforce on how the Administration handled COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and to develop a transportation security preparedness plan for future communicable disease outbreaks. The survey will inquire about the workforce's viewpoints on TSA's efforts to communicate clearly about the virus with its workforce; provide employees with personal protective equipment (PPE); adjust scheduling, leave, and telework policies; conduct contact tracing; and encourage and facilitate worker vaccinations. Once the survey is completed, a transportation security preparedness plan is to be developed for use in future communicable disease outbreaks. The plan is required to include a strategy for how TSA will communicate and collaborate with relevant Federal and private partners during a future pandemic; protect its workforce; adjust checkpoint operations to maximize hygiene and security; and assess obstacles to TSA's ability to respond to future outbreaks. The plan must align with other relevant Federal plans and strategies for communicable disease outbreaks."
