Health Care Providers

All viral hemorrhagic fever viruses must be reported immediately to the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), including Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). If you are a health care provider evaluating a patient who has traveled, please check the CDC's Traveler's Health site to determine if the patient traveled to an Ebola affected area. If the patient is experiencing symptoms of fever (subjective or ≥ 100.4˚F), severe headache, muscle pain, weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, lack of appetite, or unusual bleeding within three weeks of travel, please complete the ADPH EVD Consultation Record and call the Infectious Diseases & Outbreaks Division immediately at 1-800-338-8374.
