Ebola virus: Information for nurses

On August 8, 2014, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care released a memo for  health care professionals outlining the current risk level of the Ebola virus disease outbreak both internationally and in Ontario. The risk to Ontarians from this outbreak remains low.

The Ministry is working with various health system partners to monitor the situation and ensure the health system is ready to respond to a suspect or confirmed case.

For support during urgent situations, contact the Ministry through its Health Care Provider Hotline at 1-866-212-2272.

Visit Public Health Ontario's dedicated webpage for information about the clinical features of the virus, infection prevention and control practices, screening tools and laboratory testing requirements.
