Minimizing Risk of Ebola Exposure for Employees at Points of Entry

Categories: TSA, DHS, Border Patrol

In response to the recent Ebola crisis and the heightened risk for Transportation Security Officers, Border Patrol agents and other federal employees, AFGE is urging the government to take all necessary measures to protect the public and government employees stationed at the U.S. ports of entry and other sites from potential exposure to the Ebola virus.

“We expect every precaution to be taken to detect and isolate infected travelers at the earliest point in their journey to the United States in order to minimize exposure and reduce the risk of infection,” said AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. “Our members at TSA, Border Patrol and elsewhere have expressed concerns about their risk of exposure. AFGE is committed to continue working with management at TSA and the Border Patrol to ensure all appropriate precautions are in place, and to ensure that our officers receive the best prevention training and personal protective equipment available.”
