DHS/ALL/PIA-088 Preventing Infectious Disease at DHS Facilities During Declared Public Health Emergencies

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued discretionary guidance to its Components designed to prevent the spread of infectious disease or illness among its workforce in the event of a declared public health emergency. These processes include workforce accountability tracking, basic health screening of individuals attempting to enter to DHS facilities, laboratory testing of personnel and visitors scheduled to occupy or visit certain DHS facilities, and contact tracing to identify members of the DHS workforce or visitors who might have been exposed while at a DHS worksite. DHS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because some of these processes involve the collection and use of personally identifiable information (PII). December 2020
