- Ebola virus is transmitted through direct contact with body fluids from an infected individual. An outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in West Africa has been ongoing since March 2014, originating in Guinea, with spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria and Senegal. The Chief Public Health Office is working with other provinces and territories and the Public Health Agency of Canada to ensure EVD is contained in the unlikely event that a case presents on PEI.
Here is the current Prince Edward Island Ebola Public Health Response Guidelines 2014.
For current national guidance documents please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada website.
