Eight People Prevented From Flying
Eight people believed to be infected with measles and have plans to travel have been warned by state and local health officials that a federal regulation could prevent them from boarding planes. ................
Fly Ban For People Infected With Measles
The Do Not Board List has been in place since 2007. According to CNN, it was previously used to prevent patients with tuberculosis from boarding a plane. Twice, it was used for measles.

The measure is usually a last-ditch effort to prevent sick and infectious passengers from traveling on a plane. To put a person's name on the list, the state or local health official must contact CDC. The agency will then verify if enough efforts have been made to dissuade the patient from traveling.

The CDC will contact the Department of Homeland Security to add the person on the Do Not Board List. Airlines will then refuse to issue a boarding pass.
