State, medical community preparing for any potential risks
Thursday, October 9, 2014
LANSING, Mich – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced that although there is no immediate threat of Ebola in Michigan, the state is vigilantly working with the health and medical community to be prepared to deal with any threat the virus could pose to Michiganders.
Snyder, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH), the Michigan State Police (MSP), the Michigan Association for Local Public Health (MALPH), and Michigan’s other health and hospital professionals want to reassure all Michiganders that the state and its medical community are preparing for, and being vigilant against, any threat the Ebola virus may pose to our state and its citizens.
“Nothing is more important than the health and safety of Michigan families,” Snyder said. “Although the Ebola virus has not been detected in Michigan and hopefully will never reach our state, if a case is found I am confident that our health care system and our public health infrastructure are ready to effectively respond.”
