Temperature Screening at SEA
In partnership with Alaska Airlines, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is conducting a voluntary proof of concept to screen domestic
departing passengers for elevated temperatures above 100.4 degrees. This work builds on voluntary temperature equipment testing they conducted in June. In that three-day study, no high temperatures were detected among approximately 1,400 international arriving passengers. No single measure is enough to slow the spread of COVID-19, which is why they have a multi-phased and layered strategy with FlyHealthy@SEA. For example, they require face coverings or masks, escalated cleaning, implemented physical distancing, and added touchless technologies. They are exploring temperature screenings as part of that effort to ensure the health and well-being of travelers. No personal information about your identity or
demographics will be collected or stored. You may opt out and continue to TSA screening. Learn more here.
