Ebola Awareness & Information

The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa and claiming thousands of lives in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. One imported case from Liberia and associated locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. Ebola is one of the world's most virulent diseases, with a case fatality rate of up to 90%.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is also following the situation closely, and continues to work with CDC, as well as the Alamosa County Department of Public Health.
