In this Saturday, March 15, 2020, photo, travelers wait in line to go through customs at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lambasted the administration for allowing about 3,000 Americans returning from Europe to be stuck for hours inside the customs area at O'Hare International Airport on Saturday, violating federal recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that people practice "social distancing."

CHICAGO - Airports nationwide were thrown into chaos this weekend as workers scrambled to roll out the Trump administration's hastily arranged health screenings for travelers returning from Europe.

Scores of anxious passengers said they encountered jam-packed terminals, long lines and hours of delays as flights from more than two dozen European countries were routed through 13 of the busiest travel hubs in the United States. Airport workers queried them about their health and instructed them to self-quarantine as part of the "enhanced entry screenings" announced Friday to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
