Be Prepared

Ebola Awareness

As we approach the holiday travel season, closely monitor travel advisories, especially if you are considering traveling to Ebola-affected countries. Those travel advisories can be found at the U.S. Department of State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Georgia Department of Public Health.

While there is no direct prohibition against traveling to affected areas, safety is our top priority, and students, faculty, and staff are expected to contact CEPaR Director Jasper Cooke at (706) 667-4207 prior to traveling to, or returning from, an affected area. Cooke can advise on the most recent travel policies and procedures.

Lastly, we do ask that if you or a loved one has traveled to west Africa and you experience symptoms associated with the Ebola virus, that you visit the GRMC Emergency Department where medical professionals have been trained to screen for the virus.
