CDC Issues Guidance for Colleges on Ebola

September 3, 2014

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidance for colleges and universities on how to respond to the spread of Ebola in West Africa. Among the recommendations:

  • Calling off education-related travel to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
  • Consider the possibility that education-related travel to Nigeria may need to be called off.
  • Conduct risk assessments on students or faculty members who have within 21 days been in countries facing Ebola outbreaks. Offer health monitoring to those individuals.
