Public Health Ontario develops screening tool for travelers from Ebola-affected areas

Toronto | Nov 03, 2014

Public Health Ontario has developed a screening tool intended to help dental professionals in the initial assessment and management of both symptomatic and asymptomatic returning travellers from countries/areas affected by Ebola virus disease.

As the risk of Ebola virus disease in Ontario is currently low, routine screening specifically for Ebola virus disease is not currently recommended for everyone and should be limited to only those who have recently returned from countries/areas affected by the disease.
