    CBP and TSA direct all inbound flights from China to designated airports where the government is focusing public health resources.

    The designated airports are JFK Airport in New York City; O'Hare Airport in Chicago; San Francisco International Airport; Seattle-Tacoma International Airport; Inouye International Airport in Hawaii; Los Angeles International Airport; and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
