The U.S. is imposing some restrictions on travel from West Africa to the U.S.  Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says all U.S.-bound passengers from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea must fly into the five U.S. airports that have implemented Ebola screening measures.  Those airports are New York's JFK, New Jersey's Newark, Washington Dulles, Chicago O'Hare and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson.  

Many U.S. lawmakers have been calling for full travel ban on travelers from West Africa.  There are no direct flights between the West African nations and the U.S.  Liberian national Thomas Duncan flew to the U.S. last month and died of Ebola at a Dallas Hospital on October 8th.
