Q’s and A’s about the Ebola Virus – SK Health
West Africa is experiencing an outbreak of Ebola virus disease, a rare and serious viral infection. Health officials in Saskatchewan are monitoring the situation, in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada, other Canadian provinces, and the World Health Organization. Preparedness plans are underway in Canada to facilitate prompt identification and prevention of the spread of serious infectious diseases like Ebola virus disease.
The risk of Ebola in Canada is very low, but Saskatchewan is taking it seriously. The safety of Saskatchewan people is of the utmost importance. We understand that this developing situation may cause anxiety and raise questions. Some important things to note:
- There has never been a case of Ebola virus in Canada.
- It does not spread easily from person to person; it is spread through direct contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids, not through casual contact.
- Ebola is not spread through the air, food or water.
- People who are infected with Ebola are not contagious if they do not have symptoms.
Members of the public are advised that:
They should call HealthLine 811 if they have questions about symptoms or risk.
- The West African countries currently experiencing widespread transmission are Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. People travelling in countries where there is no Ebola outbreak are really not at risk. As a result, when they return to Canada, their co- workers or people around them do not need to be concerned.
Please see the attached FAQ from the Ministry of Health about Ebola. Health’s website is also a good source of information – it’s updated as things change and includes links to a variety of other reputable sources on this topic.
