Kansas State Restricts Travel To African Countries

KSAL StaffSeptember 11, 2014

Kansas State University is restricting travel of university-sponsored students, faculty and staff to several African countries affected by the Ebola virus.

The university said in a letter Wednesday to the Kansas State community that it will deny university-sponsored travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, which have been placed on a federal travel alert list. Travel requests to nearby Nigeria and the Congo will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

The university also said that anyone who has traveled to those countries in the last four weeks needs to be screened at the Lafene Health Center on the Manhattan campus.

As of Wednesday, 16 people who were screened were found to be not at risk of contracting Ebola.
