Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has issued a statement regarding the coronavirus outbreak in China.
The US airport has announced that it is working with partners at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to mitigate the spread of the illness.
Currently, Atlanta has two direct flights to Asia – to Shanghai, China and Seoul, South Korea. The CDC will be on-site at the airport’s international terminal to process any passengers who exhibit severe symptoms or who may have come in contact with the disease.
The announcement comes in the wake of the news that the CDC and CBP have begun screening travelers arriving from Wuhan into San Francisco International, John F Kennedy International, New York, and Los Angeles International airports.
