Advisory on the Ebola Virus
In response to the international concern over the outbreak of the Ebola HF virus in West Africa, Washington College is closely monitoring news from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and working with local health officials to keep everyone on campus safe and informed.
Any students, visitors, faculty or staff who have traveled in the affected countries (Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria) in the past few weeks are required to contact the College Health Center (410-778-7261) before or immediately upon arrival on campus to discuss screening, monitoring and precautions.
To date, in the United States there have been no outbreaks of the virus and no known cases of transmission from one person to another. The virus is not an airborne threat. It is spread only by direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone in the active, symptomatic phase of the illness. Symptoms can appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after infection and includes a fever.
For thorough information on the Ebola virus and its symptoms, visit the CDC website.
