What is the Macon County Health Department Doing About Ebola?

There are no cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Macon County or Illinois. However, Macon County public health and medical systems personnel along with other community partners have been working and continue to work to ensure that Ebola preparedness measures are in place in the event of the spread of EVD to our county. We will continue to work with our partners to update our Ebola preparedness plan and will keep the public informed of any updates as soon as possible.
