Ebola Information for the Community and Travellers

Ebola virus disease is a serious infection that is spread through close contact with people who are sick with the infection, or with their blood or other body fluids, or with infected animals. At present there is no Ebola in Australia, so there is no risk of catching the infection here. People who have travelled or worked in affected countries in West Africa may have been exposed to Ebola.

NSW Health is well-prepared to identify and respond to any suspected cases of Ebola and prevent transmission should a case occur.

There are currently no cases of Ebola in Australia. For more information visit the NSW Health Ebola Advisory Page:
