The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is providing this guidance in an effort to inform to health care facilities, emergency medical services, colleges and universities, and businesses about the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in West Africa and the best methods to protect fellow health care workers (HCWs) and patients.
Ebola Virus Disease poses an extremely low risk to Arkansas and our healthcare system. However, the frequency of international travel demonstrates that everyone should be prepared to respond to the task of treating potential EVD patients.
These documents are intended for health care facilities, educational institutions, emergency medical services and businesses.
