District Health Department No. 2 would like to share the following information related to Ebola.
What is Ebola?
Ebola is a serious, rare viral infection. A person infected with Ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear. The time from exposure to when signs or symptoms of the disease appear (the incubation period) is 2 to 21 days, but the average time is 8 to 10 days. Ebola is not spread through the air or water. The virus spreads by direct contact with blood or bodily fluids of a person who is infected and showing symptoms. Because of this, health care workers and care givers to persons sick with Ebola are at highest risk for infection.
Signs and Symptoms of Ebola Include?
- Severe Headache
- Stomach Pain
- Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)
Who is at risk?
The most important part of finding out who is at risk is to ask about recent travel. Individuals who have been to Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone are at an elevated risk.
- If you or a family member have recently traveled to the above mentioned West African Countries and are having flu like symptom you should contact your nearest hospital and or District Health Department No. 2 (800-604-2650) immediately
- Avoid Contact with the sick person's blood and body fluids as this is how Ebola is spread.
- Wash your hands after any contact with a sick person with soap and water (preferred) or an alcohol based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Be prepared to provide public health officials with the names of anyone who has had recent contact with the sick person.
