Oct. 22: Ebola Contingency Plan in Place


A territorial working group with the Nunavut Department of Health has developed Ebola contingency plans as a guide for healthcare professionals in the unlikely event of a patient presenting at a health facility in Nunavut with Ebola-like symptoms and a history of recent travel to an area of high risk. Nunavut’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and other health officials have had discussions and planning meetings with colleagues across Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada on Ebola.
