Ebola Health Advisory

The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. There were a small number of cases reported in Nigeria and a single case reported in Senegal; however, these cases are considered to be contained, with no further spread in these countries.

In the USA, there has been one imported case from Liberia and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States. The NJ Department of Health is working closely with the county and local health departments to prevent the spread of disease.

Passaic County Department of Health is working together with county and local partners to provide guidance, coordination and prevention efforts throughout the County. The following links will provide information on Ebola.
