Ebola Virus: Planning & Protecting

In an effort to provide accurate, factual information on the Ebola virus and it’s impact on Ohio, the Black Swamp Safety Council hosted a panel discussion with representatives from the Williams County Health Department this week. Because this topic is of great interest to the campus community and general public, the Williams County Health Department granted permission for us to share the presentation.

It includes information on the history of the virus, how it is transmitted, the Ohio connection and plans that are in place to help protect the US. Additionally, it provides a list of trustworthy sources for those who want to follow the latest developments.

Thank you to the Black Swamp Safety Council for organizing the presentation and to the Williams County Health Department for helping to keep the community well informed.
