Travelers with Wuhan in their journey are being screened by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control upon arrival to New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago-O’Hare and Los Angeles, in addition to screenings in China. Other U.S. airports are also reportedly screening passengers who have Wuhan as part of their travel journey.
