The closure was attributed to ‘staffing issues,’ and it wasn’t immediately clear when the terminal would reopen.

A terminal at Houston’s George Bush International Airport was shut on Sunday amidst a scarcity of protection workers that have gone unsettled during the partial federal government closure, authorities said.

In a statement, the airport terminal connected the closure of Terminal B to “staffing concerns” associated with the shutdown, which entered its 22nd day on Sunday. A ticketing counter and Transportation Security Administration checkpoint were closed at 3:30 p.m., the statement stated.

It wasn’t immediately clear when the terminal would reopen. The flight terminal statement claimed travelers were being directed to other ticket counters as well as checkpoints.
