The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reported on August 25, 2021, the U.S. air travel industry experienced a significant decrease in air passenger screening.

According to the TSA's latest report, the USA's daily air passenger screening volume decreased 21% from over 1.9 million per day to about 1.5 million passengers screened.

This decrease could be related to recent actions taken by the U.S. CDC and the U.S. Department of State.

As of August 23, 2021, these US government agencies issued various high-level Travel Advisories, strongly encouraging people to discontinue traveling.

Furthermore, the CDC now says, 'do not travel internationally until you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow the CDC’s international travel recommendations.'
