FRA Statement on Ebola
Safety is our number one priority. The Federal Railroad Administration continues to closely work with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), specifically the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other federal, state and local partners in responding to and preventing the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
Information is made available to the public about the EVD. Here are some that we encourage for you to share with your stakeholders:
- Basics of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)
- Public Guidance for the Movement and Behavior of Persons with Possible Exposure - (note date has not been updated)
- Joint CDC-PHMSA Guidance on Handling and Movement of Waste Pre-Transport
Battling EVD is a shared responsibility. We ask you to stay in close communication with your local, state authorities and emergency medical services.
