     Dallas County Ebola Public Health Information in Multiple Languages

  • * Community Public Health Advisory*

    We wanted to share a few important updates with you regarding the recent diagnosis of Ebola at Presbyterian Hospital. As you may be aware, a man from the Vickery Meadow area was taken to the hospital and tested positive for Ebola on Tuesday.   He was transported from the Ivy Apartments at 7225 Fair Oaks.

      

    The CDC has assured us there is no chance of the virus spreading to the rest of our community, as conditions that have caused it to spread in other countries do not exist here in the United States. 

     

    As a  basic precautionary measure, we have sent public health information to each of our apartment communities and are working closely with owners, managers and residents in the area. We also have translators standing by to assist with any educational information our community may need.


    The Dallas County Health and Human Services also informed us that five students who attend four different campuses may have had contact with the individual.  The students attend the following campuses:  Dan D. Rogers Elementary School, Emmett J. Conrad High School, L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary School, and Sam Tasby Middle School.  While no student from Lowe Elementary School has been identified, as an extra pre-caution the district is monitoring Jack Lowe Sr. Elementary since it is connected to Tasby Middle School.  As a precautionary measure, the students who were exposed to this individual have been advised to stay home from school. It is important to know that individuals are not contagious until symptoms appear.  Since these students have not presented any symptoms, there is nothing to suggest that the disease was spread by any of these students to others, including to students and staff.

    Some important notes to remember: 

    • Ebola is not highly infectious.

    • Ebola can only be passed on through blood or body fluids.  It is cannot be passed on from breathing the air.

    • Vigorous hand washing is the best way to prevent the disease.

    • Please contact the hospital or CDC if you or anyone you know has any Ebola symptoms including:

      • Fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F)

      • Severe headache

      • Muscle pain

      • Weakness

      • Diarrhea

      • Vomiting

      • Abdominal (stomach) pain

      • Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)

    Residents with immediate concerns can call 311 or 211, or call the OEM at 214-670-4275.  General community questions can also be directed to our office, 214-265-8285.

      

    We appreciate your care and concern of this very serious situation.  For additional information about Ebola please visit the CDC's website: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/symptoms/


     

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the man who is infected and the health care professionals who are providing treatment. Thank you for your support.
