In the wake of the largest outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) to date, and with the improvements seen in supportive care delivery in field settings, there are now many EVD survivors, including many who are experiencing sequelae of the disease. Of the eleven patients with Ebola virus disease who were managed in U.S. healthcare facilities during 2014-2015, nine survived. It is possible that some EVD survivors from West Africa could seek medical care in the U.S. The purpose of this document is to provide information about sequelae and Ebola virus persistence in EVD survivors, and infection prevention and control recommendations for U.S. healthcare providers when evaluating a patient who is an EVD survivor.
