The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring for illness among travelers and has expanded its enhanced health screening to 20 airports to identify individuals with novel coronavirus who are traveling into the United States, including Los Angeles International, San Diego International, and San Francisco International Airports in California.
