(Reuters) – A U.S. airlines trade group said it would meet with health and safety officials on Monday to discuss whether additional screenings for Ebola could improve on measures already in place to contain the spread of the deadly virus.
The meeting will consider whether adding screenings anywhere in the world might help, Victoria Day, a spokeswoman for the group Airlines for America, said on Monday.
Airlines for America “members that fly to affected countries remain in steady contact with government agencies and health officials, and have procedures in place to monitor and quickly respond to potential health concerns,” Day said in a statement.
The Washington-based trade group’s members include Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines.
At a daily news briefing, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, “What we’re looking to do is review these screening measures.”
