What you need to know about the Ebola virus

In a letter to campus, Student Health Services Director Alma Olson is asking anybody who has traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone or Nigeria within the last three weeks to call the department ASAP at 330-972-7808. Anyone who returns from these affected countries will likely need to be monitored and, depending on the circumstances of their travel, may need to limit their contact with others, according to Ohio Department of Health guidelines.
