Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Quarantine Stations participate in public health preparedness exercises at US international airports, and work with visiting partners from other countries, during public health training exercises. CDC’s Atlanta Quarantine Station staff, escort and work with public health partners, visiting from many countries, including Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone. Here, Captain Britton, an Emergency Medical Service (EMS) officer at the Atlanta International Airport, was providing training in the proper donning, wearing, and doffing of personal protective equipment (PPE), when responding to sick travelers, who may have a severe contagious disease of public health concern. Note: this level of PPE is specific to the this particular training scenario, and is not typical for a normal airport illness response.
