Local Officials Planning for Ebola

CUMBERLAND, MD –   There has been a lot of confusing and alarming information about the Ebola outbreak in the news. As you have seen, Ebola can be a severe viral illness that begins much like the flu. It is passed from person-to-person through contact with body fluids directly from a person who is having symptoms or from contaminated surfaces. Although Ebola has been around for many years, the current West African outbreak is the largest in history, and much of the confusing information heard in the news arises from cutting-edge research and findings regarding this disease. As health officials study the victims of Ebola, new and refined information emerges regarding how Ebola is spread and, therefore, prevented.  The Allegany County Health Department, in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and many local community partners, is aggressively planning should a case of Ebola occur in Allegany County or a neighboring county.
