Information About Ebola
Because the health and safety of our patients and employees is very important to us, we at Axis Community Health have been closely monitoring the events surrounding the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). As part of the nationwide response to this outbreak, we are following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alameda County Public Health Department to ensure we meet standards for early detection.
Although the risk of being infected with EVD is very low, Axis has established protocols and a screening process for patients who may have been exposed to EVD.
The early symptoms for EVD are very similar to the flu, but the appearance of flu-like symptoms alone does not mean a person has Ebola. These symptoms need to accompany either: (1) recent travel to an area known to have an Ebola outbreak; or, (2) close contact with a person suspected or known to have contracted the Ebola virus.
For more information on the EVD, please visit:
Please be sure to call us at (925) 462-1755 before coming to Axis if you feel that you have been exposed to EVD. This will help protect our patients and the community we serve. As always, if you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911.
