Ebola Information Line Opens

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has established an information line to provide an easy, reliable source of information about Ebola. Calls will be taken at 651.201.3920 or 1.800.657.3903 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. An Ebola community information meeting will also be held Saturday, Oct. 25 at North Hennepin Community College. While a large Ebola outbreak continues in West Africa, the risk of an outbreak in the United States is very low.
