George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas has closed the Transportation Security Administration checkpoints in one of its terminals due to a lack of security staff amid the government shutdown.
In an alert posted on Twitter, the airport announced on Sunday that ticket counters and TSA checkpoint in Terminal B have been shut down.
Authorities at IAH announced that the checkpoint will be closed on Monday as well.
An airport official told Business Insider that the checkpoint will remain shuttered until the TSA can muster up enough employees.
