Outbreak of Ebola virus disease (Sudan ebolavirus) in Central Uganda

Oct 06, 2022 | Beth Hess

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory about a recently confirmed outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Uganda caused by Sudan virus (species Sudan ebolavirus) to summarize CDC’s recommendations for U.S. public health departments and clinicians, case identification and testing, and clinical laboratory biosafety considerations. No suspected, probable, or confirmed EVD cases related to this outbreak have yet been reported in the United States. However, as a precaution and to remind clinicians about best practices, CDC is communicating with public health departments, public health laboratories, and healthcare workers in the United States to raise awareness of this outbreak.

See the HAN for recommendations for public health departments and clinicians.

See the CDC’s website for resources on outbreak preparedness, vaccination, and more.

In addition, all passengers, including U.S. citizens and residents, who have been in Uganda in the last 21 days will be flown to airports in New York, Newark, Atlanta, Chicago, or Washington.

CDC will host a COCA Call on Wednesday, October 12, 3:00-4:00 PM ET to provide an Update on 2022 Ebola Outbreak in Uganda. For call in details, and materials/recording following the call, see the COCA Call webpage.

To assist NACCHO in serving as an advocate on your behalf, local health departments are encouraged to contact NACCHO at preparedness@naccho.org to share your top concerns and keep us informed of information you are receiving or would like to receive to assist in your preparedness and response activities.
