On behalf of Florida’s State Surgeon General, Dr. John Armstrong, we would like to provide you with some information you may find useful.Â
Nationwide, the health care system continues to prepare for the potential for Ebola.Â The Florida Department of Health is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and experts throughout the state to obtain the most current information for all professional health care groups and to share best practices and guidance.Â As you might imagine, there are a lot of questions and requests for information.Â There is also new information that becomes available almost daily.Â For information, educational materials and videos, please visit the web site below:http://www.floridahealth.gov/
Attached is a package of information we believe will be helpful to you, and we encourage you to share these materials widely with your partners.
- Health Care Actions for Ebola
- We Can Keep Communities Safe
- Ebola Virus Disease Fact Sheet for Medical Professionals
If you would like to speak with someone on a specific Ebola-related topic, please contact your county health department at http://www.floridahealth.gov/
Again, thank you and we look forward to sharing guidance, information and resources that will be of value to you and those you serve.
