Ebola: Traveling from West Africa

With the recent outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, many questions have come up regarding the risk of infection for travelers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a Level 3 Travel Warning advising against nonessential travel to any of the above countries. In addition, the CDC is continuing its screening and education efforts on the ground to prevent sick passengers from traveling from the affected countries.

If you’re traveling from West Africa:

The CDC asks those returning from affected areas to be aware of any change in their health. Those who have not had direct contact with infected body fluids, animals, or contaminated objects, should monitor their health for a minimum of 10 days and look for the following symptoms:

    Fever

    Headache

    Joint and muscle aches

    Weakness

    Diarrhea

    Vomiting

    Stomach pain

    Lack of appetite

Symptoms can appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure with 8-10 days being the most common. Anyone who suspects they were exposed should monitor their health for 21 days post exposure and continue to monitor for the following symptoms.

If you recently traveled from the affected areas and find that you’ve developed any of the above symptoms, contact your health care provider immediately—even if it’s just a fever.

UW faculty and staff should contact their private health care provider while students can either contact SHC at 920-424-2424 or their private health care provider. Tell your provider about your recent travel and potential exposure before you go to the doctor’s office or emergency room to prevent potential transmission to others.

For more information, please visit the CDC for the latest updates.
