Internal Transport of EVD Specimens Within a Healthcare Facility

It is critical to minimize the risk of transporting suspected EVD specimens. When transporting suspect EVD specimens within a healthcare facility, key procedures include:
  • Specimens to be contained within a rigid, durable, and leak-proof secondary container that will contain the specimen should a leak or spill occur.
  • Absolutely NO pneumatic tube system transport to avoid the risk of breaks and leaks.
