The World Health Organization last week declared the end of Ebola virus transmission in Guinea. Under modified U.S. entry screening, travelers from Guinea with no enhanced risk factors will receive a modified CARE (Check and Report Ebola) kit with information about Ebola, and encouraged to watch their health for 21 days and contact their local health department or seek health care if they develop symptoms consistent with Ebola. The U.S. also will continue to support Ebola prevention and detection measures in Guinea, including at its primary international airport.
