Ohio's Ebola Preparedness
The Ohio Department of Education, in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Health, conducted a statewide phone conference on Thursday with school superintendents. The information shared in the conference included information about Ohio’s preparedness plan, and the Swanton Local School District will work cooperatively with the Fulton County Department of Health to monitor any possible Ebola situations in the future. At a minimum, the concern over the Ebola virus has made our staff more alert and aware as to why we do what we do when it comes to the cleaning procedures of our school buildings, and this week have been reminded of the importance of those procedures.
Ohio is taking an aggressive response to this situation. Learning from the experience in Dallas, Summit County is using its quarantine powers to isolate people that had confirmed close contact with the nurse—one person so far. Also, the Ohio Department of Health has activated an Ebola call center. The call center is housed at the Ohio Department of Health, will be staffed by public health nurses and other public health professionals with infectious disease specialists as needed. They will be available to provide timely, accurate, credible information about Ebola and the state's response. The number is 866-800-1404 and will be staffed 24 hours a day, but may be adjusted as call volume necessitates.
Ohio has a strong, statewide system of public health authorities at the county and city level, as well as a high-quality network of health care providers, and they all have experience dealing with infectious diseases and the resources and training to prepare for and respond to any serious outbreak.
Facts About Ebola:
- Ebola is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with one of the Ebola virus strains.
- Ebola can cause disease in humans and nonhuman primates (monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees).
- Ebola is spread by touching the blood and body fluids of a person who is sick with Ebola, or things with their blood and body fluids on it like clothes and bedding. Ebola is not spread through the air, food or water.
- Patients are contagious only when they are symptomatic and show signs of a fever.
Anyone believing that they have been in contact with a person with Ebola should call their health care provider.
In addition, we are asking our parents to review these items at home with your students:
- Do not share food, drinks, or personal items.
- Cover your cough and wash your hands.
- Cough or sneeze into the elbow bend of your arm or into a tissue, then wash your hands.
- Wash your hands after recess or gym, before eating or preparing food, and after using the restroom, blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Hand washing is the most effective way to keep germs from entering our bodies. To wash your hands effectively, use plenty of soap and water; scrub the palms of hands, fingernails, around wrists, between fingers, and under rings for 30 seconds. Rinse well and dry hands after washing.
