What You Need to Know about Ebola

Procedures for transporting and treating potential Ebola patients in Calvert are well established. Leaders of Calvert’s 911 dispatchers, EMS, Sheriff’s Department, infectious disease physicians, Calvert Memorial Hospital ER and infection control, and Health Department continue to discuss the latest revisions in CDC and Maryland guidelines for Ebola monitoring and treatment. Discussions have also taken place between the Health Department and the Calvert County school nurses and administrators. Our local agencies have made appropriate preparations and coordinated their services to best ensure both the health of anyone potentially infected with Ebola and the safety of those providing care.

The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. There were a small number of cases reported in Nigeria and a single case reported in Senegal; however, these cases are considered to be contained, with no further spread in these countries. CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has comprehensive information about Ebola on their website. > Learn More
