At least six of the other Orlando TSA officers who fell ill worked at the West Checkpoint while two others worked at the East Checkpoint. Details of the other sick employees were not immediately available.

Dr. Raul Pino of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County recently said that researchers are trying to determine if the TSA unit at Orlando Airport is considered a cluster for coronavirus cases.

Representatives from Val Demings, Stephanie Murphy and Darren Soto said on Monday that they had asked the TSA to update its policies to require officers to wear face masks and other personal protective equipment.

TSA officers are highly valued members of our community, with their own families, and they deserve to be protected, the Florida politicians wrote in a letter to the administrator of the TSA. To date, TSA officers are authorized, but not required, to use masks and respirators to protect themselves and prevent the spread of the virus. While we understand that PPE is rare, we respectfully request that you update the protocol to require that TSA officers use masks when working at checkpoints, particularly at the major hub airports that move passengers from COVID-19 epicenters.

More than 20,000 people were diagnosed with coronavirus respiratory disease on Monday morning.
