Disabled travel during COVID-19

I am a below the knee amputee. In early July I have a really necessary trip, the first since February. In "normal times' going through a metal detector means that I am patted because... it rings (after all the lower half of my right leg is metal) and I wear braces. I am concerned as to what will happen with the COVID-19 prevention procedures. Any idea? I hate wearing shorts but maybe they might be a good idea

Basically the same procedure. Shorts won't make a difference as you will still set off the metal detector. I'm batting @80% getting full body pat downs, some days it's an implant (same implant for 9 years only detected randomly) , some days I'm the random selection and some days they don't like the look of something in my bag. They have been constant about following their protocols. Be early, be calm, maintain eye contact with your gear and let them proceed.
