CDC Ebola resources for health care professionals and the public

From the CDC:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed and disseminated a number of Ebola resources for use by health care professionals, state and local health departments, and the general public. Information is available on the CDC website and is updated daily.

With the announcement Tuesday of the first Ebola case diagnosed in the US, these resources may be helpful to Congressional offices, as many receive a large volume of calls from constituents or policy makers in their districts. You may want to consider adding some of these resources to your office’s website, including syndicated content that updates automatically from CDC’s web.

The CDC Ebola virus website homepage includes an overview of clinical guidance issued by CDC, with links to specific guidance.  Other sections of the homepage highlight the latest updates and provide links to information for special populations, such as those traveling, working or living abroad, airline workers, and healthcare personnel.  For those needing more details about symptoms, transmission, prevention, and risks, links from the homepage lead to scientific information on these topics.
