DPH PROVIDES TRIAGING GUIDELINES FOR
 NON-HOSPITAL HEALTH CARE SETTINGS

The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) is urging providers to be ready and is providing guidance to outpatient facilities including, but not limited to urgent care centers and outpatient clinics, in order to help with triaging and handling patients who may have had potential exposures to Ebola virus.  DPH is now recommending an approach based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.  The DPH Health Alert has information on triaging, reporting procedures, and infection control, as well as links to WHO resources.
