This 2019 image depicted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) measles health alert messages displayed in English and Spanish at a US-Mexico land border crossing. These pedestrians were entering the United States at the busiest land port of entry in the Western Hemisphere, San Ysidro, California, where each year, nearly 9.4-million people walk through the port of entry. Measles continues to spread worldwide. Although declared eliminated in the United States in 2000, travel-related spread of measles to unvaccinated US communities has caused a surge of more than 1000-cases in the first 6-months of 2019. The Division of Global Migration and Quarantine is responsible for posting these health alerts for travelers at ports of entry, where most international travelers arrive.
