Ebola Virus Disease 

​Information for Local Health Departments

Local Health Departments (LHDs) should immediately notify the California Department of Public Health of any patients suspected of having Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). LHDs should review and update their plans for responding to and managing a patient with EVD or other highly infectious diseases. As these plans are developed, LHDs should coordinate with local healthcare providers and facilities, the Local Emergency Medical Services Agency (LEMSA), and local EMS transport agencies, among others.
