Arcadia University is monitoring recommendations by the CDC and has taken many steps to be informed and prepared. For students, staff, and faculty on the Glenside campus, Student Health Services has teamed with Abington Hospital’s Ebola Triage Unit, which has generously provided guidelines and screening information for the general community. Arcadia recommends that you review the Abington Hospital Ebola Information Guide to inform yourself before and after you travel.
Diagnosing Ebola in someone who has been infected for only a few days is difficult, because the early symptoms, such as fever, are nonspecific to Ebola infection and are seen often in patients with more commonly occurring diseases such as the flu or viral infection.
If a person is concerned that he or she displays the early symptoms of Ebola after being in an area where Ebola is present, the first contact should be the Abington Hospital Ebola Triage Unit at 215-481-6866 for an over-the-phone screening in the Montgomery County, Pa., area.
UPDATE your emergency contact information to ensure you receive TEXTS and CALLS from Arcadia’s Emergency Notification System in the event of an emergency or university closing.
