Purdue officials monitor Ebola outbreak in western Africa

August 2014  


Purdue University is closely monitoring the Ebola outbreak in western Africa. At present, no immediate threat to our campuses has been identified. The Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) is receiving bulletins from the CDC and the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) related to Ebola and will distribute any necessary information and guidance, as it is known, through campus communication channels. PUSH continuously monitors any and all infectious diseases, including Ebola. Detailed infection control systems are in place.

As in any situation, students who need medical attention should call 911 for an emergency, or contact PUSH for non-emergency care at (765) 494-1700.
