  • Description:
    The 2014 Ebola outbreak is the largest epidemic of the Ebola virus in history, currently with widespread transmission in three countries in West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, and four confirmed cases of Ebola in the United States. As this epidemic continues to make news, healthcare and public health attorneys are being called on to address questions and concerns related to legal preparedness for potential infectious disease outbreaks.

    This issue brief describes select points of interest—including case law, statutes, and information about CDC guidance—highlighted during a presentation entitled “Ebola and Public Health Law” delivered by Gregory Sunshine and Montrece Ransom at the 2015 American Health Lawyers Association Physicians and Hospitals Law Institute on February 3, 2015.
