From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 1877, the 'Security Screening During COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Act' directs the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator to issue a plan to enhance security operations during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce the spread of the virus at passenger screening checkpoints and among the TSA workforce. Under the bill, the TSA Administrator will coordinate with the Department of Homeland Security Chief Medical Officer, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop a plan that identifies best practices among foreign governments, airports, air carriers, and other Federal agencies regarding COVID-19 and pinpoints specific operational changes that TSA can make to reduce the spread of the coronavirus at checkpoints based on those best practices. The TSA Administrator would be required to consult with stakeholders and the TSA workforce when developing the plan and submit the finalized strategy to Congress. A Government Accountability Office report on implementation of the plan would be due one year after implementation begins."
