  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Nowadays people talk about the possibility of an Ebola-related travel ban to the United States.

airport-health-checkWhile those talks continue, some restrictions are starting in the United States. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Tuesday that all travelers flying into the United States from the West African countries most impacted by the Ebola virus can only enter the U.S. through five airports.

Starting today, passengers traveling from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea can only gain entry through the international airports in New York, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago and Newark, New Jersey -- which account for 94% of all incoming travelers from those countries.

While all U.S. entry points currently screen passengers for potential exposure to the Ebola virus, these five airports have taken additional steps to screen for the disease, such as taking passengers' temperature and other additional protocols.
