As you may have heard today, Nina Pham, the Texas Health Presbyterian nurse who was diagnosed with Ebola, has been declared Ebola free. She is being released from National Institutes of Health (NIH) today and expected to return to the Dallas - Fort Worth area later this evening.
I want to reassure everyone that a person, who has “recovered” from
Ebola, is free of the virus. This person is no longer capable of
transmitting the disease. Nina Pham is now a “No Risk” individual to
the community and can resume her normal daily activities.
We wish her well in her efforts to resume a normal life.
If you have further questions, feel free to call the Tarrant County Ebola Information hotline at 817-248-6299.
