Ebola Prevention and Control Resources

The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. Two imported cases, including one death, and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States.

The City of Joplin Health Department is monitoring the outbreak and working very closely with the local health care community and statewide partners in preparing for and responding to Ebola-related concerns.
