The chimes at LAX airport will be silent as the city adjusts to a new rule that will require that all airport workers be screened for tuberculosis, the LA Times reports.
The City of Los Angeles, which is in charge of running LAX, said it will begin enforcing the rule Friday, as the pandemic hits the city harder than any other airport.
In addition to the chimneys, which have been known to become jammed with travelers for weeks, the new rule would require that workers at all other terminals, including those at LAx and L.D.
T, undergo a tuberculosis test.
The new rule was passed by a committee of the Los Angeles City Council in December.
It will take effect April 15.
