    For contact tracers and health workers in Sierra Leone

    Call 117: Do not touch sick person or their personal items.

    Treatment : Quick medical care helps the patient and can stop Ebola from spreading.

    First Visit : A health worker visits and tells the patient’s family how to look for signs of Ebola every day for 21 days.

    Wider Investigation: A health worker talks to others in the community who had direct contact with the patient and tells them how to look for signs of Ebola every day for 21 days.

    Cooperation Saves Lives: Even one missed contact can keep Ebola going.

    Follow-up Health Checks: Report any symptoms of Ebola to the health worker every day for 21 days.

    Investigation Complete: If no contacts develop symptoms and no new Ebola patients are confirmed, investigation is complete and Ebola is stopped.

    If a person develops symptoms, a new 21-day investigation begins.
