Health Department Calendar
Widely reported in the media, the first case of Ebola virus disease has been diagnosed in the U.S. Ebola is reportable in Ohio as Viral Hemorrhagic Fever, which is a Class A disease. This means it should be reported immediately by telephone to the local health jurisdiction where the patient resides. If you are aware of any organizations in your jurisdiction that may send volunteers or other personnel to West African countries affected by the Ebola outbreak please contact the Health Department. The Health Department will review the guidance on risk factors and fever monitoring with these organizations so they can share this information with their members/volunteers that are returning from the affected countries to the U.S. More information can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/.
The Ohio Department of Health is activating a 24-hour-a-day call center to answer Ohioans’ questions about Ebola and the recent events in Ohio in an effort to ensure Ohioans get accurate, timely information.
The number for Ohioans to call is 1-866-800-1404.
