The scenario needs more information. Are we talking a single Patient Zero who arrives in the US and starts spreading contagion? Or has the disease spread through the world and there are multiple infection points in the US? In the former it would take a week or so; in the latter, forget it, with the speed of air travel and people constantly moving about, it will be in your neighborhood before the authorities can broadcast warnings.
