    • Description:
      The U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) has statutory and regulatory responsibility to prevent the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable disease from foreign countries into the United States. Applicable regulations are found in 42 CFR, Parts 34 and 71. These responsibilities are delegated to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Infectious Diseases, Division of Quarantine. Quarantine Stations are located at eight major international airports; each Quarantine Station has responsibility for all ports in an assigned geographic area (seepp. 11-12). You should know which Quarantine Station has jurisdiction over your port. Historically, PHS Quarantine Stations have been referred to in the port community simply as “PHS” or “Public Health.” As organizational names and assignments have changed over the years, that tradition has remained constant.
