TSA allowing travelers to bring up to 12oz of hand sanitizer in carry-on bag

(HOI) -- The Transportation Security Administration is letting travelers bring hand sanitizer in their carry-on bags.

In a tweet, people will be allowed one container up to 12 ounces per passenger until further notice.

Those who decide to bring this amount will need to be screened separately, the TSA said, adding time to the screening process.

All other liquids, gels and aerosols brought to a checkpoint continue to be allowed at the limit of 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters carried in a one quart-size bag.

The TSA is reminding travelers to follow CDC guidance -- and recommending washing hands directly before and after screening.

Facemasks can also be worn, but the security officer may ask the traveler to adjust it at any point during screening.
