Homeland Security Announces Flight Restrictions to Stem Ebola Spread

To stem the spread of Ebola, the Department of Homeland Security has limited the number of flights coming from affected countries in West Africa, NPR reports.

“Today, I am announcing that all passengers arriving in the United States whose travel originates in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea will be required to fly into one of the five airports that have the enhanced screening and additional resources in place,” Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said in a statement.

Beginning today, passengers will be subject to “secondary screening and added protocols, including having their temperature taken, before they can be admitted into the United States,” the statement said.

The airports are New York’s JFK; Newark, N.J.; Washington, D.C.’s Dulles; Atlanta; and Chicago O’Hare.

“We are working closely with the airlines to implement these restrictions with minimal travel disruption,” Johnson said on Tuesday. “If not already handled by the airlines, the few impacted travelers should contact the airlines for rebooking, as needed.”
