Ebola: U.S government lifts travel restrictions on Guinea


The Biden administration said it was lifting Ebola-related travel restrictions for U.S. visitors who have recently been in Guinea, effective Friday.

In March, the Department of Homeland Security ordered that travellers who had been in Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo within the past 21 days had to fly into one of six U.S. airports – New York-JFK; Chicago; Atlanta; Washington Dulles; Newark, New Jersey; or Los Angeles.

The restriction on travel from DRC was lifted on May 3. DHS said on Thursday there had been no new Ebola cases reported in Guinea since early April.
