Ebola Virus Disease

It is important to remember that Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) does not presently represent a direct public health threat to the citizens of Montana. The potential of this disease, howeWebsite_EbolaGraphicver, requires that our public health, emergency response, and health care infrastructures prepare to the best of their ability for the possible introduction of the disease into the state.

CCHD is working closely with local public health, health care, and emergency response partners to prepare for the possible introduction of EVD into Cascade County. This includes reviewing the coordinating emergency plans and sharing information.

For more information on EVD, visit www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/index.html.

As CCHD has more current local information, it will be posted here.
