Ebola

The Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH) is closely monitoring the Ebola situation in the U.S. and other countries.

The department is in continuous contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), county and municipal health departments across the state, hospital and medical associations, individual healthcare facilities, EMS providers, West African community leaders and other partners to ensure Ebola preparedness and response efforts are aligned and closely coordinated. The PADOH will support the investigation of any suspect cases and provide guidance and information on infection control protocols and procedures to ensure the health and safety of all healthcare workers, patients, visitors and the general public.

Additionally, PADOH continues to share important information and CDC advisories and alerts to healthcare professionals to heighten awareness of possible cases, request reporting of any suspect cases, reinforce the importance of asking patients for their travel history and reiterate infection control procedures.
