DHS/CBP/PIA-066 CBP Support of CDC for Public Health Contact Tracing

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) continues to assist the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with its public health response efforts. In December 2020, CBP issued a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) documenting CBP efforts to support CDC public health efforts. As described in the PIA, CBP initially provided contact information to CDC on certain arriving international travelers with a nexus to 212(f) restricted countries within 14 days prior to arrival. CBP is publishing this PIA update to expand the population to include all international travelers arriving in the United States by air or via land ports of entry (if available) regardless of their nexus to a particular country. Furthermore, CBP is now sending CDC the country of departure/embarkation, an indication as to whether the traveler is a passenger or crewmember, and the passenger’s seat number (if available) from the passenger name record (PNR) transmission, to support CDC’s public health efforts.
