Recommendations from the CDC Regarding Routine Screening for EVD

Given that the transmission and occurrence of Ebola virus and occurrence of Ebola virus disease in West Africa has been greatly reduced, healthcare facilities should adjust screening practices for acutely ill patients and no longer need to screen patients specifically for EVD. Healthcare facilities should continue to obtain a travel history in triage before completing full patient evaluation so that infection control precautions and patient placement can begin promptly when appropriate.
