Ebola Virus Information & Resources

 

As the news continues to evolve around Ebola, all schools in Los Angeles County should be reassured first that, to date, there are NO suspected or confirmed cases of Ebola in Los Angeles County. Ebola is not easily spread and even less likely to spread on a school campus.

Students and staff who are returning to school from travel should not be excluded from school.

Flu season is here and students and staff are much more likely to get the flu. Schools are encouraged to focus on preventing more contagious diseases such as flu, enterovirus, and other illnesses.

Everyone should practice good hygiene such as frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth, and staying home when sick.
