INFORMATION ON THE EBOLA VIRUS

Brown University continues to monitor the Ebola virus outbreak in several West African countries. In addition, the University is in close communication with local health officials, hospitals and emergency response agencies to ensure the safety of our community. To date, there have been no cases in Rhode Island.

Ebola is transmitted by direct contact of the blood or body fluids of an infected patient with the mucous membranes or broken skin of another person. It can also spread by coming in contact with needles or other articles contaminated with infected body fluids. Ebola is NOT airborne, foodborne or waterborne. A person is infectious to others only when they have symptoms of illness.
