Message from Susan M. Gottheil, Vice-Provost (Students)
The University of Manitoba is closely monitoring advisories from Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors (MHHLS), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa.
According to PHAC, the risk in Canada is considered very low with no reported cases.
The U of M is following guidelines established by MHHLS, PHAC and WHO, and will provide updated information about the Ebola virus to the University community when there is new information that could potentially impact faculty, staff and students.
Students, staff and faculty should contact Health Links 24-hour phone line at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257 or visit wrha.mb.ca/healthinfo/healthlinks with any questions or concerns.
University Health Service is closely monitoring the situation and will advise the University about appropriate communication needs and possible interventions should they become necessary.
