September 2, 2015, marks 42 days (two 21-day incubation periods) after the release of the last survivor of Ebola from a Liberian Ebola treatment unit (ETU). On Sept. 3, the World Health Organization declared that Liberia was free of Ebola virus transmission. There is a very low risk of Ebola transmission in Liberia and a very low risk of Ebola importation. Although the risk of Ebola is low, travelers should, as usual, avoid contact with sick people, animals, undercooked meat, bush meat, dead bodies, blood and body fluids.
CDC is closely monitoring the situation and will update information and advice for travelers as needed.
