Travel warning: US is screening travelers from Uganda for Ebola

On Thursday, the United States announced it would immediately begin rerouting all travelers from Uganda to five domestic airports for Ebola virus screening and follow-up while in the country.

The move is a precautionary measure due to the recent Ebola virus outbreak in Uganda, where about 80 cases of the deadly disease have been reported so far.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will conduct temperature checks and risk assessments on everyone who has been in Uganda in the last 21 days, the incubation period of the deadly Ebola virus. State and local officials will follow up on these individuals for 21 days after their arrival in the United States

The five airports are:

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • Washington Dulles International Airport
  • JFK International Airport in New York
  • Newark Liberty International Airport
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport

Duke is not currently aware of any faculty, staff or students in Uganda. Anyone with upcoming travel plans to East Africa should contact Employee Occupational Health & Wellness or Student Health in advance for guidance and register their trip on the Duke Travel Registry, as is required for all Duke-sponsored international travel.
