While a large Ebola outbreak continues in West Africa, the risk of an outbreak in the United States is very small. There are currently NO confirmed cases of Ebola in Montgomery County or in the Washington area. A nurse who cared for an Ebola patient in Dallas, Texas was treated at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, which is specially equipped to handle such cases. She was discharged from NIH on October 24, 2014.
If there is a confirmed case of Ebola infection in a Montgomery County resident, the County’s Department of Health and Human Services and local hospitals will work together to respond and limit spread of the disease.
