Ebola Continues To Be a Concern in Healthcare and Government

While the attention around Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in United States news outlets is subsiding, it continues to be a concern to the healthcare industry and government organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

On November 24, the CDC released a health advisory regarding Ebola risk in Mali due to confirmed cases in Bamako, Mali. According to the CDC's health advisory, all travelers entering the United States from Mali are subject to the 21-day active post-arrival monitoring and movement protocols now in effect for travelers from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, with twice-daily temperature and symptom checks in coordination with state or local public health authorities.

If EVD is still a concern to you and or your customers, or you wish to continue to be proactive with this disease, we recently published a page of our suggested infection control SKUs.
