State Representative Kristina Daley Roegner (R-Hudson), along with Representative Anthony DeVitis (R-Green) and Representative Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley), today released the following joint statement regarding the recent update that the second health care worker in Dallas diagnosed with Ebola visited family in Akron from October 8-13:

“We are working in coordination with state and federal health officials on taking the proper safety precautions in response to the recent updates regarding the second health care worker, and her visit to our area. We would like to assure all citizens of Summit County that their care and safety is our primary concern and focus, and that we are doing everything in our power to investigate, monitor and resolve the issue.”

According to the Ohio Department of Health, Ebola is spread through touching bodily fluids including feces, blood, vomit, or saliva of a person who is sick with or has died from Ebola, or from exposure to contaminated objects like needles. Symptoms may appear from 2-21 days after exposure.

If you feel that you have been exposed to Ebola, or are exhibiting symptoms of Ebola, immediately call  your physician or the Summit County Public Health Department at (330) 923-4891. Calling first will help health care providers take care of infected patients and will protect others from exposure.
