SUTTON (AP) - New Hampshire public health officials will be holding a public meeting to discuss health care workers returning to the state from Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa.
Public health director Dr. Jose Montero and state epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan will be at Kearsarge Regional High School on Monday evening to give the community a chance to ask questions about the disease and the potential impacts of health care workers returning to the region.
Ebola, which has a three-week incubation period, is spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person. Someone can't be infected just by being near someone who is sick with Ebola. Someone isn't contagious unless he or she is sick.
