  • EBOLA UPDATE/RESOURCES (10/27):

     

    Last night, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Updated Guidance:  Monitoring Symptoms and Controlling Movement to Stop Spread of Ebola.

    The new guidance defines four risk levels based on degree of exposure:  high risk, some risk, low risk and no risk, and provides recommended actions based on those levels.  Of course, governors may still take action that is inconsistent with CDC guidance.   Fact Sheet, click here.
     
    ANA has again joined with the American Hospital Association and American Medical Association to issue a joint statement of support for the CDC Guidance.    Statement, click here.
