On August 5, 2014, the Division of Public Health forwarded a Health Alert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) titled “Guidelines for Evaluation of US Patients Suspected of Having Ebola Virus.” The CDC has since provided a decision tree to guide health care personnel regarding when to test an individual for Ebola Virus disease.
To date, the only cases of suspected or confirmed Ebola in the United States are the American aid workers who contracted the disease in Africa and were recently released from an Atlanta hospital.
For questions or to report a case of suspected Ebola Virus disease or to arrange for shipment of samples to the CDC through the DPH Public Health Lab, call the Office of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at: 888-295-5156 or 302-744-1033.
To consult directly with the CDC, call 770-488-7100.
