Stopping Ebola spread “As we were reminded this week with the third confirmed case of Ebola on American soil, we must do everything possible to contain this deadly disease at its source. Implementing reasonable travel restrictions is one way that Ebola can and should be contained. I support a temporary suspension of travel visas for passengers traveling from impacted countries in West Africa, and I urge the president to implement these common-sense restrictions immediately.”

---Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
