The Prime Minister of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia issued an order on October 15, to immediately bar entry to travelers coming from Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone. All visitors from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are prohibited from entering St. Lucia until Ebola is brought under control in those African countries. Passengers from Nigeria will be required to present a "recent medical certificate" clearing them of the virus. PM Kenny Anthony said an Ebola outbreak of the virus would be devastating.

The Colombian government has announced that at the recommendation of Colombia's National Institute of Health it is now barring entry by any travelers requiring visas who have been in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria or Senegal within the preceding four weeks.

Haiti's prime minister has announced that the U.N. peacekeeping force in Haiti was suspending the rotation of troops from African countries as a preventative measure because of Ebola.
