SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The potential for widespread transmission of this virus by infected individuals seeking to enter the United States threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure, and the national security. In an abundance of caution and to assist in preventing the introduction and spread of this communicable disease in the United States, DHS, in coordination with the CDC and other Federal, state and local agencies charged with protecting the American public, is implementing enhanced arrival protocols to ensure that all travelers with recent travel from the People’s Republic of China are provided public health services. Entry screening is part of a layered approach used with other public health measures already in place to detect arriving travelers who are exhibiting overt signs of illness, reporting of ill travelers by air carriers during travel, and referral of ill travelers arriving at a U.S. port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to appropriate public health officials to slow and prevent the spread of communicable disease into the United States. To ensure that travelers with recent travel from the People’s Republic of China are screened, DHS directs that all flights to the United States carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the People’s Republic of China arrive at airports where enhanced public health services and protocols are being implemented. While DHS anticipates working with air carriers to identify potential persons from the affected area prior to boarding, air carriers shall comply with the requirements of this document.

Under this authority and effective at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 2, 2020, I hereby direct all operators of aircraft to ensure that all flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the People’s Republic of China only land at one of the following airports: • John F.

Also, for purposes of this document, crew, and flights carrying only cargo (i.e., no passengers or non-crew), are excluded from the measures herein.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely 
monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) 
coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. 
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many 
different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. 
Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between 
people such as with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe 
Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
    The potential for widespread transmission of this virus by infected 
individuals seeking to enter the United States threatens the security 
of our transportation system and infrastructure, and the national 
security. In an abundance of caution and to assist in preventing the 
introduction and spread of this communicable disease in the United 
States, DHS, in coordination with the CDC and other Federal, state and 
local agencies charged with protecting the American public, is 
implementing enhanced arrival protocols to ensure that all travelers 
with recent travel from the People's Republic of China are provided 
public health services. Entry screening is part of a layered approach 
used with other public health measures already in place to detect 
arriving travelers who are exhibiting overt signs of illness, reporting 
of ill travelers by air carriers during travel, and referral of ill 
travelers arriving at a U.S. port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to appropriate public health officials to slow and 
prevent the spread of communicable disease into the United States.
    To ensure that travelers with recent travel from the People's 
Republic of China are screened, DHS directs that all flights to the 
United States carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were 
otherwise present within, the People's Republic of China arrive at 
airports where enhanced public health services and protocols are being 
implemented. While DHS anticipates working with air carriers to 
identify potential persons from the affected area prior to boarding, 
air carriers shall comply with the requirements of this document.

Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to All Flights Carrying 
Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present 
Within the People's Republic of China

    Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1433(c), 19 CFR 122.32, 49 U.S.C. 114, and 49 
CFR 1544.305 and 1546.105, DHS has the authority to limit the location 
where all flights entering the U.S. from abroad may land. Under this 
authority and effective at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 2, 2020, I 
hereby direct all operators of aircraft to ensure that all flights 
carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise

otherwise present within, the People's Republic of China (excluding the 
special autonomous regions of Hong Kong and Macau) within 14 days of 
the date of the person's entry or attempted entry into the United 
States. Also, for purposes of this document, crew, and flights carrying 
only cargo (i.e., no passengers or non-crew), are excluded from the 
measures herein. This direction is subject to any changes to the 
airport landing destination that may be required for aircraft and/or 
airspace safety as directed by the Federal Aviation Administration.
    This list of affected airports may be modified by the Secretary of 
Homeland Security in consultation with the Secretary of Health and 
Human Services and the Secretary of Transportation. This list of 
affected airports may be modified by an updated publication in the
