As questions arise from the public works community on the Ebola virus disease and control efforts, APWA has compiled a list of Ebola resources to provide basic background information and helpful links on Ebola protocols and support information. These resource links are grouped according to general topic.
Members from public works departments that have developed protocols and procedures to address Ebola planning and response from the public works perspective are encouraged to forward information to Teresa Hon at firstname.lastname@example.org
so that information can be shared.
