Contacts

· As the primary mode of person-to-person transmission is contact with contaminated blood, secretions or body fluids, any person who has had close physical contact with patients should be kept under strict surveillance, i.e. body temperature checks twice a day, with immediate hospitalization and strict isolation recommended in case of temperatures above 38.3°C (101°F). Casual contacts should be placed on alert and asked to report any fever.

· Surveillance of suspected cases should continue for three weeks after the date of their last contact.

· Hospital personnel who come into close contact with patients or contaminated materials without barrier nursing attire must be considered exposed and put under close supervised surveillance.
