The largest Ebola epidemic in history is ongoing in West Africa, with several thousand deaths reported by the World Health Organization.  Ebola is a viral illness spread by direct contact with the blood or body fluids from an Ebola patient who has active symptoms of disease.  Ebola cannot be spread by air, water or food.  For more information, see poster link and resources below.

As part of Ebola containment, SUNY Administration has prohibited campus sponsored travel to countries with CDC Level 3 Travel Notices.

  • Travel Ban: The SUNY system ban on campus sponsored travel to countries with current CDC Level 3 travel warnings applies to study abroad, research, grant funded activities and other SUNY sponsored travel.  This travel ban does not affect travel on your own.
  • Reporting Requested: If you travel on your own to a country with a CDC Level 3 Warning, please call the Health & Wellness Center at 315-786-2376 before and after you travel.  Travelers returning from affected countries who become ill should avoid contact with other people, and call their medical provider or the Health Center before arriving at a provider office.
  • Possible Quarantine: Travelers who have visited countries with CDC Level 3 Warnings may be quarantined up to three weeks upon return to the U.S.

You may notice screening for travel within the last 3 weeks when you present for medical care at a health care provider, including the Health & Wellness Center.  Only individuals who have been in contact with an Ebola patient within the last 3 weeks are at risk of infection.
