About Ebola

Situation Report

The current situation does not present a significant personal risk to people in Minneapolis and greater Minnesota and it remains very unlikely that we will see any sustained spread of Ebola in the United States.


The concerns about Ebola serve as a reminder that there are many infectious diseases circulating at any given time and that every day we need to follow good infection control practices. Basic precautions include:

  • Washing your hands frequently.
  • Covering your mouth with a tissue or shirt sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
  • Staying home when you’re sick and not going to work.
  • Getting your annual flu shot.
  • Maintaining a clean work environment (particularly in public access spaces).
