What's Happened to Standard Protocol?

Ok see in 2009 we had to go through temperature taking etc. measures before we could disembark from our 22 day cruise from Vancouver when we got to Beijing. They started the night before and my husbands was up so they made him stay and drink a bottle of water then recheck. He was also put on a list to be rechecked in the morning before we could leave. This is a very fast, easy, and painless process done with a laser thermometer.

 Any international flights should have this process when those people are going through customs! Show ur passport, get your forehead scanned! You should be asked if you have traveled outside the US in the last 30 days like I am every single time I go to the Dr. Why has this practice dropped off? You should be worried if you are in an ER or Dr.s office and aren't asked that!

How could that nurse have been allowed to fly prior to the 21 day quarantine? I know it is an inconvenience and frustrating, but would you rather be inconvenienced and alive or infected with this really bad illness that takes all your dignity before it kills you if they can't save you in time?


If your were on Frontier Flight #1143 Cleveland-Dallas on October 13 or know someone that was, the CDC would like to talk to you.  There were 132 passengers on that flight.  Please call the Center for Disease Control and Prevention at 1-800-CDC-INFO.
