May 21, 2021- Ebola Virus Disease Situational Update


Friday, May 21, 2021

As of May 14, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is no longer recommending post-arrival risk assessment and follow-up of travelers who have been in outbreak areas of Guinea and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in the past 21 days. There have been no new confirmed Ebola cases reported in DRC and Guinea since March 1 and April 3, 2021, respectively. CDC will continue to closely monitor the situation and may recommend public health risk assessment if certain triggers are met. Healthcare providers should continue to monitor for travel notices from CDC or DC Health to be aware of active outbreaks and report any suspected cases to DC Health.
