President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest.

The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

The White House has said that Americans should not fear an Ebola outbreak in the U.S., nor are there any active plots by the Islamic State against the homeland, officials argue.

But polling has shown that the public is increasingly worried about such threats, and the trips look to be geared towards reassuring Americans that his administration is properly handling both crises.
