Information on Ebola Virus Disease

Posted in Latest News on October 17, 2014.

Overview

The state of Florida is prepared to identify and treat patients who may have Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). In the event that a patient with EVD is diagnosed in Florida, the Florida Department of Health will collaborate with healthcare partners to ensure appropriate patient care, protocols for isolation, infection control and the assessment of risk to relevant individuals. The county health department in each of Florida’s 67 counties has regular communication and interaction with hospitals, medical providers and laboratories to ensure that appropriate reporting and public health action can be taken when necessary. Looking forward, the Florida Department of Health and Florida Division of Emergency Management will continue to collaborate to ensure the health and safety of all Floridians. The Division of Emergency Management activated the state’s Joint Information Center, allowing state officials to share accurate, timely information with the public. Our first priority is to protect the health of Florida’s residents and visitors and ensure the safety of Florida’s families.
