2014 Ebola Outbreak in West Africa
As an international educational institution, Middlebury College monitors international health situations. The current outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa has prompted the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to issue a level 3 travel warning urging all US residents to avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. While the threat of Ebola to the Middlebury campus is extremely low, medical staff will continue to monitor the situation and inform the community if the risk increases.
At this time, Middlebury College health professionals encourage people to:
- Read Middlebury specific updates and information about Ebola, which includes detailed information for Middlebury College and Monterey.
- Stay informed by monitoring the CDC Ebola website, including CDC information specific for colleges and universities.
- Follow CDC advice regarding non-essential travel to designated high-risk areas.
- Note that anyone who has traveled to or is currently traveling in the affected areas, or who travels to those areas in the future (until further notice), will be required to delay his or her return to the Middlebury or Monterey campus for 21 days post departure from the affected areas.
