  • Corporate Authors:
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.). Office of the Director.
  • Description:
    Purpose -- Key changes to the movement and monitoring guidance -- New risk levels -- Recommended actions for symptomatic people with fever or other Ebola symptoms -- Recommended actions for people without symptoms -- Action definitions -- New guidance for monitoring and determining exposure risk of returning health care workers to the US.

    This fact sheet explains CDC’s updated guidance to protect America from Ebola. This updated guidance [Interim U.S. guidance for monitoring and movement of persons with potential Ebola virus exposure ] focuses on strengthening how we monitor people who may have been exposed to Ebola and how medical professionals will oversee their care and, when warranted to protect the public health or our communities, limit their movement or activities. Through these changes, CDC and state and local health departments seek to support people who may have been exposed to Ebola, while also continuing to stop Ebola at its source in West Africa through the valor of our health care workers who serve. These changes will help ensure their symptoms are monitored and a system is in place to quickly recognize when they need to be routed to care. These actions will better protect potentially exposed individuals and the American public as a whole.
