Department of Homeland Security Issues New Guidelines for West African Travelers

Beginning today, all West African travelers coming to the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea are required to travel through the five airports that are equipped for Ebola screening. 

The statement, issued by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson yesterday reads:

“Today, as part of the Department of Homeland Security’s ongoing response to prevent the spread of Ebola to the United States, we are announcing travel restrictions in the form of additional screening and protective measures at our ports of entry for travelers from the three West African Ebola-affected countries. These new measures will go into effect tomorrow.”
