• Ebola Updates

    There has been a recent outbreak of Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever in parts of West Africa. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a Level 3 Travel Warning advising against nonessential travel to Guinea and Sierra Leone. Level 2 Travel Warning for Liberia. Please be advised of this situation if you are considering traveling to West Africa or the surrounding areas.

    If you are traveling from West Africa, the CDC asks returning travelers to be aware of any change in their health. For students, faculty and staff who have recently traveled to these countries, please be aware of the symptoms of the Ebola virus disease. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the virus, though 8-10 days is most common.

    If you are coming to the University of South Carolina campus and have recently been to the affected areas, call 803-212-8004 and inform us about your recent travel and potential exposure before you arrive to USC’s campus (or go to a doctor’s office or emergency room) to prevent potential transmission to others. Please make sure to wear a mask upon entry to any medical facility and report your recent travel history to medical personnel.

    USC’s Student Health Services staff is closely monitoring the information being disseminated by the CDC, has a plan in place in the event an Ebola case is identified and is in contact with the S.C. Department of Health & Environmental Control for further updates.
