Salisbury-Ocean City: Wicomico Regional Airport Not Concerned about Ebola

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. – As five international airports begin the process of stepping up screenings for Ebola, the Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport says there are no concerns on its end when it comes to the deadly virus coming through its gates. "The government is tackling this issue at its point of entry into the United States. And that's at the largest international airports and not at the airports that just fly domestic passenger flights", says Airport Director Robert Bryant.

At Wicomico Regional, six daily commercial flights come in and go out, and all of them are continuing without any changes to how passengers are screened. Bryant says is any procedures do change, it won't be a decision made locally. Instead, it will be something he is notified about from the federal government.

At this point, though, Bryant says he has not and does not expect to be notified. "As far as scheduled airline service is concerned out of our airport, it's operations as normal."
