Keeping Threats Out of the Country: A Department-Wide Approach

Keeping Threats Out of the Country

DHS is enforcing the presidential proclamations at and between air, land, and sea ports of entry, alerting the Department’s CDC partners to any individuals who require enhanced health screening.

Every day, 150-200 total CBPOs assist with the screening efforts at the 13 funneling locations. Between the Ports of Entry, BPAs are monitoring all persons in their custody who meet the CDC’s COVID-19 travel history guidelines for additional referral and screening. CWMD has more than 500 trained screeners and employs approximately 95 screeners per day across the 13 airports.
