Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot grumbled that the circumstance at O’Hare was positioning countless tourists at higher health danger. “No one has time for your incompetence,” she tweetedTrump “Fully staff our airport right now, and stop putting Americans in danger.”

O’Hare authorities excused the problem on Twitter, discussing that U.S. Customs “processing is taking longer than usual… owing to enhanced COVID-19 screening.” Another tweet kept in mind: “We have strongly encouraged our federal partners to increase staffing to meet demand.”

Under the brand-new guidelines that entered into result Friday at midnight Americans flying in from the majority of Europe, China and Iran now deal with “enhanced entry screening.” They should address concerns about their medical history and present condition, and should offer contact details for regional health authorities, according to a Department of Homeland Security declaration. They are then anticipated to self-quarantine at home for 14 days.
