The 2014 Ebola Virus Disease (“Ebola”) outbreak in West Africa is the largest outbreak of the disease in history. The outbreak is primarily affecting individuals in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, although it has more recently caused Ebola cases diagnosed in the United States and other countries. The Garrett County Health Department is monitoring the worldwide situation and working very closely with the local health care community and statewide partners in preparing for and responding to situations that might be related to Ebola.
Immediately report any positive exposures, regardless of symptoms, to the Garrett County Health Department: 301-334-7777 or 301-895-3111 (business hours–office), 301-334-1930 (after hours/weekend on-call).
