Ebola Industry Update

October 17, 2014

The following information has been provided by the American Hotel & Lodging Association:
In response to the continued news on Ebola, we want to be sure that we are sharing the latest information and resources with the industry. We are monitoring the situation very closely and are in close contact with government officials regarding the latest information and guidance.
The health, safety and security of our guests and team members is paramount. However, it is important to underscore that the White House and the nation's top health officials have emphasized that the dangers of a serious outbreak in this country remain extraordinarily low. 
In an effort to keep abreast of the latest resources, we are sharing with you information on Ebola, its symptoms, and the measures you can take to be better prepared. Resources are available on our website here, with guidance on how to identify an infected individual and what to do if you believe you may have been exposed. We also encourage you to access the materials provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which has been the authoritative voice on this issue.
And for additional research, we suggest you also visit these helpful links:
Please also join the American Hotel and Lodging Association and health and security experts for a members-only webinar on October 30, 2014 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET to help you prepare for health emergencies for all kinds of viruses, including Ebola, and the even more commonplace flu. You can register today by clicking here.
We will continue to keep you updated as additional information becomes available.
Thank you. 
Katherine Lugar
President & CEO, American Hotel & Lodging Association
