As with any health situation and illness, RISD Health Services and school nurses are aware of the symptoms and protocols related to the Ebola virus. Ebola is not spread as easily as influenza and other more common illnesses. For more information about Ebola and how it can be spread, please review the information below from Presbyterian Hospital.
The district will continue to closely monitor the situation and remain in contact with health authorities. The health and safety of our students and staff is RISD's highest priority.
