Ebola Outbreak in Uganda Ends; CDC Lifts Public Health Screening Requirements

January 17, 2023

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stopped advanced health screenings of individuals with recent travel to Uganda after the end of an Ebola outbreak in that country. The Ugandan Ministry of Health declared an end to the outbreak 42 days (the equivalent of two incubation periods) after the country's last recorded case of the Sudan strain of Ebola virus.

CDC will continue to support the health officials in continuing surveillance, infection prevention and control, and response activities to help ensure rapid detection and response to any future cases and outbreaks.
