Information on Ebola and UK resources for questions or concerns

A message to the UK Campus Community from University Health Services and Division of Student Affairs:

ebola virus (magnified)As we welcome students back to Lexington and to the University of Kentucky campus, we know there has been increasing attention and public concern over the Ebola crisis in West Africa.  Although the likelihood of an outbreak in the U.S. is extremely low, we have been working with the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, University Health Service and UK HealthCare’s Department of Infection Prevention and Control to monitor updates from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) as well as reviewing our practices to ensure safety.

The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are always of utmost importance at the University of Kentucky. Although there is no significant risk at this time, we are providing the following links to the CDC’s Ebola information page and University Health Service for those who have questions or concerns.
