Two TSA screeners at the Atlanta airport earlier this month tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Dozens across the country have tested positive.
Hartsfield-Jackson has closed some security checkpoints as TSA staffing declines, amid a sharp drop in air travel as Americans stay home. The main security checkpoint is closed from 11:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. The airport has also shut down some moving sidewalks and escalators.
