UNCP Student Health Services Response to Ebola Outbreak
The UNCP Student Health Services is closely monitoring the Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF) outbreak in West Africa, and is following the guidance and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health.
There is currently a Level 3 travel warning issued by the CDC to restrict nonessential travel to the neighboring countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. For more information regarding the recommended travel restrictions, visit http://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2014/p0731-ebola.html.
Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a rare disease that is transmittable through direct contact with a sick person’s blood or body fluids and/or contact with contaminated objects or infected animals. It is not spread through the air.
People (including students, faculty and staff) returning to the United States from an affected area should monitor their health, and if they feel sick, they should contact their health provider immediately and tell him or her about their recent travel and potential contacts.
