Ebola FAQs and Informational Updates:
With the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the few identified U.S. cases, Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) has become a hot-button topic in the news. The only case of Ebola in Maryland to date has been a nurse from Texas who was treated in Bethesda at the National Institutes for Health, and no cases have been diagnosed in the state. However, it is the mission of the Allegany County Health Department to provide current and accurate information to our communities about EVD and dispel any rumors or misinformation which may be circulating. The following links will take you to the most up to date information available about Ebola on both the U.S. and international fronts.
