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.
