Pekoske personally spoke with TSA employees in Newark and responded to their questions.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Pekoske has conducted virtual town hall meetings with the entire TSA workforce via live web stream from the agency’s headquarters. 

More recently, he has traveled to airports where he has spent time engaging with airport employees and federal air marshals to see and hear first-hand how the modifications to TSA checkpoints and operational policies designed to contain the spread of COVID-19 have been implemented. The Newark Airport event marked his 20th virtual town hall meeting.

During today’s virtual town hall, Pekoske addressed the impact of Hurricane Laura on TSA employees and their families along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana and he offered support for those impacted. He also touched on TSA employees who are in the line of spreading wildfires in California, Washington and Colorado.
