... Since one of the most effective means of controlling communicable diseases is to reduce the exposure of healthy individuals to persons who have the illness, the subject of quarantine has surfaced as a critical tool to be employed when necessary. The Airport Cooperative Research Program sponsored research undertaken by TriData the division of System Planning Corporation into what would be necessary to effectively quarantine up to 200 travelers from an international flight for 2 weeks, and how much it might cost.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
