Health Information Advisory – Ebola Outbreak

Click to download an info-graphic on the question: Is it the flu or ebola?

Although the Ebola outbreak currently poses minimal risk to the U.S. population per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared it a public health emergency of international concern. Ebola is NOT spread through the air, water, or food; it is only spread through direct contact with blood or bodily fluids of a person who is sick with Ebola or through objects like needles that are contaminated with the virus.

The CDC has issued a level 3 travel warning to avoid nonessential travel to the following countries: Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The Ebola outbreak has occurred in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria.

Any students, faculty, or staff who have had recent travel to those countries within the past 21 days, or who have had contact with blood or bodily fluids of a patient known or suspected to have Ebola virus and have the symptoms below, should immediately CALL ahead to their health care provider and mention their recent travel or possible exposure to the Ebola virus. Symptoms include:

  • fever higher than 100.4
  • headaches, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain
  • unexplained bleeding

Students should CALL (not visit) the La Salle University Student Health Center at 215.951.1565. Faculty and staff should contact their family physician as well as leave a message for Student Health.
