What screening steps are currently in place?

On January 31, United States Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II declared a public health emergency for the United States to aid the nation's healthcare community in responding to 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition, on Sunday, February 2, the U.S. government implemented temporary measures for travelers returning to the U.S. from China.

Any U.S. citizen returning to the U.S. who has been in the rest of mainland China within the previous 14 days will undergo proactive entry health screening at a select number of ports of entry and up to 14 days of monitored self-quarantine to ensure they have not contracted the virus and do not pose a public health risk.
