ABSTRACT

In Reply.—  Drs McKinney and Barnas identify a legitimate problem that has concerned the Travelers' Health Section, Division of Quarantine, Centers for Disease Control, for many years.

One of the primary reasons is that the actual practices at the ports of entry may vary over time and with different personnel. The actual practices also may not be in accord with the country's explicit government policies.On
