Action requested: Be aware that Ebola monitoring is continuing only for travelers from Guinea.
Background & Recommendations:
The World Health Organization has declared Sierra Leone as an Ebola free country, leaving only Guinea as a country in which Ebola remains a significant concern. Public health will no longer monitor travelers from either Liberia or Sierra Leone. Although this is a major step towards containing the epidemic in Africa, clinicians should still be alert for travelers from Guinea who present with fever or other symptoms.
Action requested: Take advantage of useful free clinical reference tools to support management of obesity.
