ABSTRACT

COVID-19: Federal Air Marshal Service Should Document Its Response to Cases and Facilitate Access to Testing, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Highlights: "In the U.S. there have been over 29 million cumulative reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and about 524,000 reported deaths, as of March 23, 2021. Public health officials have recommended social distancing and other steps to reduce the spread of the disease, but air marshals often work on planes where they cannot fully adopt these measures. The CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act included a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to conduct monitoring and oversight of the federal government's response to the COVID19 pandemic. This report examines (1) how many air marshals have been diagnosed with COVID-19; (2) FAMS's [U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service] steps to protect air marshals' health; and (3) how FAMS adapted its operations during the pandemic."
