The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended an end to U.S. Ebola travel-related measures, including public health monitoring of travelers who have been to Uganda in the prior 21 days. Additionally, CDC has discontinued public health risk assessment at US ports of entry and has removed its Travel Health Notice for Uganda. While traveler monitoring by health departments is not currently recommended, sporadic cases of Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic fevers may still occur in endemic countries. Therefore, it is important for healthcare providers to remain vigilant for the possibility of imported cases of viral hemorrhagic fevers.
