Ebola Updates

CDC Guidance Information
The 2014 Ebola (Ebola Virus Disease) epidemic is the largest on record. The vast majority of Ebola cases have occurred in West Africa although there have been a few cases in the United States, primarily among healthcare workers. In the case of a suspected case of Ebola the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides resources for healthcare workers about up to date information regarding Ebola. Please visit the CDC’s website to learn about patient evaluation, diagnosis, laboratory specimen collection, transport and other topics. Find the CDC’s updated guidance online regarding personal protective equipment for U.S. healthcare workers working with Ebola patients.
