Captured in 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff member, Audilis Sanchez, this image depicts one of CDC’s Check and Report Ebola (CARE) program offices, in which you can see stacks of pre-paid cellphones, and one of the CARE staff members standing at her computer. The CARE program provided these pre-paid cell phones to travelers arriving from countries with Ebola outbreaks. Travelers used these phones to report their temperatures and any symptoms to a health department daily for 21 days. During the 2014-2016, Ebola epidemic, CDC Quarantine Stations coordinated enhanced entry risk assessment of travelers from countries with Ebola outbreaks at five U.S. airports: Atlanta, Chicago, New York (JFK), Newark, and Dulles Airport outside Washington, DC.
