Important Notice from the NYC Dept. of Health & Mental Hygiene

There have been reports of employers in New York City requiring employees who have recently traveled to Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia or Nigeria to get tested for Ebola before being allowed to return to work or being told they cannot return to work.

We remind employers and all New Yorkers that:

  • Traveling to an affected country does not mean you have Ebola.
  • You cannot be infected by being near someone who has Ebola.
  • Ebola is spread by directly touching the bodily fluids of an infected person.
  • The only people at risk in the current outbreak are those who traveled to an affected country AND had direct contact with an Ebola patient or their body fluids.
  • If someone visited one of the affected countries, but did not have direct contact with a person or animal with Ebola, they are NOT at risk.
