Ebola Virus Disease

Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) Information

The risk of Ebola transmission in the general public is very low. Enhanced screening of travelers is in place at area airports. Area hospitals have conducted drills for Ebola containment and they are enforcing infection control policies and procedures to protect patients, visitors and staff.
If you have recently traveled to a West African country, specifically Sierra Leone, Guinea or Liberia and experience fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea or vomiting call 911 or your healthcare provider and explain your symptoms and travel history. This is imperative so that first responders and the hospital can prepare for your transport and appropriate care. DO NOT go to an emergency department or doctor’s office without calling and discussing your symptoms first.

If you have specific public health questions or concerns related to Ebola please email phresponse@co.bergen.nj.us.
