  • Description:
    Escorts will accompany travelers who are identified as potentially having Ebola from the primary screening area to the secondary screening area. Secondary exit screeners will be interviewing travelers who need additional (secondary) screening for Ebola. Security/law enforcement might be needed to assist in escorting individuals identified for secondary screening. Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic fevers can spread through direct contact with blood or body fluids (such as saliva or urine) of an infected person or objects contaminated with the blood or body fluids. Prevent directly touching infected materials or individuals by properly wearing the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE). It is important to help protect you, and all pieces of PPE should be worn properly throughout your period of potential exposure. PPE is not required during routine activities. The recommended PPE for you while you perform secondary screening, escorting or law enforcement duties is a pair of waterproof disposable gloves, long-sleeved waterproof gown, face mask, and eye protection such as face shield (preferred) or goggles. You should also wear close-toed shoes with booties (shoe coverings). These protective items are important to avoid contact with body fluids
