EbolaEbola Virus Disease

With the coverage of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the news, there has been a lot of interest in learning more about this disease.   Ebola is not significantly different from other diseases that require isolation and quarantine and the American healthcare system, including hospitals in the St. Louis region, are prepared to handle such illnesses.

The Jefferson County Health Department also has emergency response plans in place for all different types of major health events that could occur, including a response to a case of a serious illness such as Ebola. We are also communicating with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and keeping up-to-date on the quickly evolving outbreak investigation nationally and internationally. We are sharing CDC guidance and other new information with our community partners regularly.
