Ebola Information

Members of the Marist College community share the international concern about the devastating Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the recent cases in the United States.  

While the threat of Ebola to the Marist campus is remote, steps are being taken to ensure that we are prepared to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and deal with any contingencies that may arise.

Marist Health Services is staying closely connected to campus and community partners as well as local, state, and national public health resources to provide information and links to the most up-to-date and accurate information available.  

Warnings for travelers

Because of the Ebola virus outbreak as well as the unpredictability of safety and travel in West Africa, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued Health Travel Warnings for the outbreak countries of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. The CDC urges U.S. residents to avoid all nonessential travel to these countries.

The CDC has also issued an alert for the countries of Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, urging travelers to take precautions and protect themselves from coming into contact with persons infected by Ebola
