More information About Ebola
What are we doing in Minneapolis?
At the present time, there have been NO Ebola cases identified in Minnesota.
In communities like ours across the U.S. and around the globe, preparedness efforts are under way to keep the Ebola risk contained. Heightened local preparedness and factual understanding of the disease are also essential.
With all the current talk and intense media coverage about Ebola, people are feeling concerned. It is important to get the facts from trusted, reliable sources. Ebola is not circulating in Minnesota. The Minneapolis Health Department is working closely with Hennepin County Public Health and the Minnesota Department of Health to monitor the situation and ensure that the public health community is ready to respond in a planned and science-based manner if needed. Surveillance for, and investigation of, infectious diseases of all kinds is what public health does daily.
