As a member of the Ursuline College community, we want you to know that we are closely monitoring the Ebola situation in Cleveland and will continue to keep you updated on matters regarding the Ebola virus as may be necessary.
Ursuline College’s Nursing Department is also monitoring the situation closely since its nursing students are working in the hospitals as part of their clinical rotations. The Nursing Department has been, and will continue to be, in contact with the students as important information and developments become available. The safety of our employees and students is of utmost importance to us.
If you or someone you know were on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 from Cleveland Hopkins to Dallas/Fort Worth on Monday, October 13, you should contact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immediately at 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636).

For further information regarding the Ebola virus, including the signs and symptoms of the virus, ways in which the virus can and cannot be transmitted, and recommended prevention measures, please access the CDC’s website.
If you develop any of the symptoms listed on the CDC website, or otherwise have reason to believe that you have come into direct contact with blood or bodily fluids of a person who is sick with the Ebola virus, you should seek immediate medical attention.
