Ebola Preparedness Resources

As travel continues between West Africa and the rest of the world, the possibility increases that more individuals exposed to Ebola will seek care at hospital emergency departments. It is also possible that more medical and other volunteers caring for Ebola patients will contract the disease and need treatment in U.S. hospitals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response have been anticipating and preparing for Ebola in the U.S. Both agencies aim to increase understanding of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) and encourage widespread preparation for managing EVD patients.
