What does being an Ebola survivor mean?
• Being a survivor means that you cannot get the same type of Ebola for at least 10 years after you recover.
• Survivors can no longer spread Ebola to others through casual contact. (For example, hugging, shaking hands, etc.)
• For the next three months, you may still be able to spread Ebola through intimate contact (such as sex or breastfeeding) and should take special precautions to protect your loved ones.
• Three months after you recover, you can go back to normal intimate activities.
