How Rules Have Changed at TSA Checkpoints

As we slowly begin to emerge and begin to take airline flights, get ready for some noticeable changes at the airports.

You already know to bring a mask and practice social distancing. When you check in for your flight, chances are it will be at a kiosk. And at the TSA checkpoint, don’t hand your boarding pass. Just hold it up.

Then, hand the officer your photo ID. You might have to pull down your mask.

And as for the no liquids rule, TSA now permits you to bring along a single 12 ounce container of liquid hand sanitizer in your carry-on.

And your laptops and other electronic gear can now remain in your carry-on as well.
