Restrictions on travelers from Ebola-stricken countries

The Obama administration announced Tuesday that all U.S.-bound travelers from three Ebola-stricken African countries will be required to fly into one of five airports that are conducting additional screening, Fox News reports.

The change comes as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle call for a travel ban from those countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. While administration officials continue to resist that step, the Department of Homeland Security said the new restrictions will go into effect starting Wednesday.

The change means all travelers from those three countries will have to arrive at one of the five designated airports: New York’s JFK, Newark, Dulles, Atlanta and Chicago.
