Spring is quickly approaching which means some people are already marking their calendars for vacation.

If you have upcoming plans, here are four tips that the Transportation Security Administration recommends:

Keep your masks on:

Masks have to be worn in all airports in support of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Emergency order and must be worn from the time you step into the terminal until you exit your destination terminal, including on flights.

Don’t bring prohibited items:

Take a look at the “What Can I Bring?” guide and see what you can and can’t bring to limit physical contact with TSA officers.

Bring needed items for security checkpoint:

You will need your I.D. and liquids can’t be more than 3.4 ounces. Hand sanitizer can be up to 12 ounces.

Don’t bring a gun to checkpoints:

Guns must be declared to the airline and packed in a locked, crushproof container.
