Ebola Alert: U.S. Airports Screening Some Arrivals PDF Print E-mail

With serious world concern about the spread of the deadly virus, senior air travelers may encounter delays and other inconveniences. At five major U.S. airports, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol squads are conducting individual health screenings of specific arriving passengers.

As of this date, the process is confined to those coming to the U.S. from the West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Most of the Ebola illnesses have been spreading among populations in those areas.

Seniors traveling through major airports, so far in Atlanta, New York JFK, Newark Liberty, Washington Dulles and Chicago O’Hare, may experience delays due to the increased health security measures. When your flight plans include those airports, for more info, check with the airline, your travel agent and/or go to www.cbp.gov
