BREAKING NEWS
   Richland Public Health has information on Ebola (/news/2014/10/15/ebola-and-ohio or click on the opening slideshow above) with links to other sources. This page will be updated as needed.
   If you have questions about Ebola you can call this toll free number: 1-866-800-1404 (Ohio Department of Health). Locally, call Richland Public Health Nursing: 419-774-4540.
   There is no outbreak of Ebola in the United States. Our best advice is to get a flu shot. There has been one U.S. death from Ebola (from a traveler who contracted the virus in West Africa) but every year in the United States there are more than 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths from complications of influenza.

Here is a link to the CDC page with updates on the severe respiratory virus that is affecting many states: http://www.cdc.gov/non-polio-enterovirus/about/EV-D68.html#public
