Ebola/Infectious Disease Information

Due to the increased concern about the Ebola virus, campus communities should be aware of students, faculty, and staff who have either recently traveled to West Africa or who have had direct contact with someone who did.

A person infected with Ebola can't spread the disease until symptoms appear.
Ebola is spread through direct contact with blood and body fluids.
Protect yourself against infectious diseases.

If someone on campus begins to experience any symptoms AND has a recent travel history to West Africa (or direct contact with someone who did), they should seek medical attention RIGHT AWAY and limit their contact with others.

Health and Safety professionals at SFA are monitoring this situation very closely and are making every effort to ensure the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and visitors.

For the most current information and guidance, see the CDC's Ebola website.
