    What you should know -- Considering a trip to Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone? -- Have you recently returned from Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone?

    West Africans in the United States may face negative responses from people in their community because of the current Ebola outbreak. People may say bad things about you, or try to stop you or your family from everyday activities like work, school, shopping, or spending time with friends. This is known as stigma. Stigma mostly occurs because of fear—people fear Ebola and the disease is linked with a specific region of the world. You are not more at risk for Ebola because of your specific race or country of origin.
