The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. Two imported cases, including one death, and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States.
CDC/OSTLTS Public Health Law Program and Office of the Associate Director for Policy compiled an Interim Table of State Ebola Screening and Monitoring Policies for Asymptomatic Individuals[PDF 846KB] to help law and policy makers prepare for and respond to Ebola-related situations. Information provided and conclusions reached in this table are based only on publicly available orders, protocol documentation, and press releases. This table will be updated as states create or revise their Ebola protocols; please revisit this page often for the most current information.
CDC’s Ebola (Ebola Virus Disease) web page contains more information and the most current alerts.
