Latest Advice for Schools on the Ebola Virus
8th August 2014

We have been advised that PHE will be preparing guidance working with the Department of Education to ensure Boarding schools as well as other establishments have the most appropriate advice and guidance for returning overseas students specific to the Ebola outbreak. Urgent enquiries can also be discussed with local PHE Centres and Health Protection Teams (postcode look-up details http://www.hpa.org.uk/HPAwebHome/). There is quite a bit of material about the Ebola Virus on the PHE and HPA websites, see links below. http://www.hpa.org.uk/Topics/InfectiousDiseases/InfectionsAZ/Ebola/ https://www.gov.uk/government/news/public-health-england-ebola-support-and-surveillance-continues-but-risk-remains-low-in-England For advice on what to do if you are suspicious of symptoms in students: https://www.cas.dh.gov.uk/Home.aspx
