The CDC issued a health advisory today regarding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa underscoring the potential for travel-associated spread of the disease and the risks to healthcare workers in the area.  The possibility of infected persons entering the US from the ourbreak area is still low – but the CDC also provided guidance to clinicians on evaluating patients. Here’s the CDC’s Ebola Update Presentation slide deck and the transcript of their press briefing on the Ebola situation.  I’ll provide a more detailed update next week.
