Ebola Virus – Non-healthcare Workers
Airline and other workers may be at risk if they are exposed to infected people who have the signs and symptoms of Ebola. Workers are also at risk if they are directly exposed to the blood or other body fluids of a patient with Ebola or to objects such as needles that have been contaminated with infected body fluids.
The CDC has developed guidance for workers in non-healthcare workplace settings including:
- Airline workers
- Humanitarian aid workers
- Laboratory workers
- Funeral and mortuary workers
- College and university workers
