Health officials are worried that an increase in travel during the holidays will lead to a surge in coronavirus cases on Long Island.
Even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends not traveling, the TSA reported more than 7 million people passed through airports in the last week.
Long Island’s MacArthur Airport has been busy over the holidays. Travelers say they needed to fly and are trying to take all the precautions they can.
Sunday alone the TSA reported more than 1.2 million people passed through the nation’s airports, the highest number since March.
