Ebola information for laboratory professionals

15 August 2014

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term continues to collaborate with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Public Health Ontario (PHO), Ministry of Labour and other health system partners to monitor the evolving Ebola virus disease (EVD) situation in West Africa and take measures to ensure the ongoing health system’s readiness to respond to a probable or confirmed case. The risk posed by Ebola for Ontarians remains low.
PHO has updated its guidance for public health units, health workers and health sector employers on its EVD Website. Visit www.publichealthontario.ca/ebola to view its resources, in particular, the following document which updates laboratory guidance: Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) Interim Sample Collection and Submission Guide (PDF).
