College Carefully Monitoring Ebola Outbreak
At this time, no Colorado College students, faculty, or staff have reported recently being in the Ebola-impacted areas of West Africa. Additionally, the college does not have any programs scheduled to travel to the region. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting that “the likelihood of this outbreak spreading outside of West Africa is very low." (https://www.facebook.com/CDC). More detailed information can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/guinea/index.html. The college will continue to monitor information released by medical professionals and infectious disease experts closest to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and will be ready to implement existing infectious disease protocols should the need arise. Emergency preparedness is a priority for Colorado College. For more information, please visit http://www.coloradocollege.edu/other/preparedness/
