Now that the first patients with Ebola are arriving in US hospitals, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released infection prevention and control recommendations for patients with Ebola hemorrhagic fever.
Although the recommendations focus on the hospital setting, guidelines for personal protective equipment (PPE) and environmental infection control measures are applicable to any health care setting. The recommendations will be reevaluated and updated as additional information becomes available.
