No Swine Influenza in Russia, but passenger screening in effect
U.S. citizens in the Russian Federation should be aware that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are monitoring an ongoing outbreak of swine influenza A (H1N1).  As of April 27, there have been no reported cases in Russia.
The Embassy is aware that the Russian Federal Consumer Protection Service has issued an order to "ensure control" of the health of passengers arriving from the United States or Mexico, ordering that passengers be screened for signs of infectious disease.  We do not know when or how this order will be implemented.
For more information, please consult the Department of State's Swine Flu Outbreak Information at http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_pandemic.html.
