  • Description:
    On May 9, 2015, WHO declared the end of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, and on May 13, 2015, CDC changed the country classification for Liberia to a “country with former widespread transmission and current, established control measures.” As an added precaution, WHO also recommended an additional 90-day enhanced surveillance period to assure Liberia remains free of Ebola transmission.

    As of June 17, 2015, after carefully considering all available options for protecting the public’s health and safety, the U.S. government is modifying its enhanced Ebola entry screening and monitoring program for travelers returning from Liberia. We will be recommending a step-down approach to monitoring travelers from Liberia. This change does not affect U.S. enhanced entry screening and post-arrival monitoring for travelers returning from Sierra Leone and Guinea, nor does it affect exit screening for travelers departing Liberia. CDC is updating its Interim U.S. Guidance for Monitoring and Movement of Persons with Potential Ebola Virus Exposure and will inform states as soon as possible of specific recommendations.
