The government wants to take your temperature and/or scan you for the swine flu before you board a plane. In fact, they want you to have a “health screening.” From the Flu.gov website:
Due to the outbreak of H1N1 (Swine) flu occurring in the United States and many other countries, airport staff in some countries may check the health of arriving passengers. Travelers from the United States arriving in other countries may be checked for fever and other symptoms of H1N1 (Swine) flu, and their travel may be delayed.
According to the Militarized Flu Police, you may be asked to:
*Pass through a scanning device that checks your temperature. (The device may look like an airport metal detector, a camera, or a handheld device.)
*Have your temperature taken with an oral or ear thermometer
*Fill out a sheet of questions about your health
*Review information about the symptoms of H1N1 (Swine) flu
*Give your address, phone number, and other contact information
*Be quarantined for a period of time if a passenger on your flight is found to have symptoms of H1N1 (Swine) flu
*Contact health authorities in the country you are visiting to let them know if you become ill...
