PHE on guidance for schools who
have students returning or visiting from West African countries affected by the
current outbreak of Ebola.
PHE has published specific Ebola guidance and risk
assessment for use in educational, childcare and young persons’ settings,
and this is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/ebola-advice-and-risk-assessment-for-educational-childcare-and-young-persons-settings
. There is also further Ebola information, and FAQs on the gov.uk website
I hope this guidance answers your questions and provides
reassurance, but please contact your local Health Protection Team if you have
any further enquiries. Local contact details can be searched for here.

The BSA have just had confirmation
from Dr Charlotte Roberts at PHE that Nigeria is considered a separate and
different case from the three countries currently affected by the Ebola
Guidance will be updated daily as necessary if the situation changes.
