Ebola and Panic in Poplarville: School District Releases Statement on Employee

POPLARVILLE, Miss.–Ebola. That’s a hot word right now and it can set off panic. Now parents in Poplarville concerned because a school district employee is set to return from a mission trip to Africa. The district said in a statement Thursday that they do not believe the person went to a country where Ebola is happening and that they’ll be screened when they get back.

This is the statement from Superintendent Carl Merritt:

“As the public is well aware, the Poplarville School District has an employee who has traveled to Africa. We are in the process of trying to determine the specific regions he visited while in Africa.  But it is our understanding he did not visit any country where Ebola is a problem. Upon his return, he will be placed in contact with officials with the Mississippi State Dept. of Health for a determination of whether he poses a risk.  In no event will this employee return to work until he has been cleared by the state department of health.  The school district will provide more updates as more information becomes available,”

State health officials said Thursday that they believe the disease is not airborne and can only be contract through contact with bodily fluids.
