Community health update 10-4-2014

The patient evaluated Friday for Ebola-like symptoms is feeling better and has been moved out of isolation. He remains in stable condition and we are using universal precautions to manage his care.

He was not tested for Ebola because his symptoms and travel history did not meet the CDC risk criteria for testing. That determination was confirmed by the Florida Department of Health, which authorizes and coordinates testing for the CDC.

For more information about testing criteria and the latest information about Ebola, visit cdc.gov.
