Although Ebola poses little threat to the general population in the United States, it’s important to be aware of any changes in your health if you have recently traveled to one of the countries where the Ebola outbreak is occurring: Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the Republic of the Congo.

  1. Monitor your health for 21 days after you leave West Africa, and watch for fever, headaches and body aches.
  2. If you become ill, call your primary health care provider immediately to discuss your symptoms, travel and potential exposure before you go to the clinic or hospital.

Avoid travel to affected areas

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides up-to-date warnings, alerts and recommendations at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices and additional related information at:
