While the United States and the international community works to contain the outbreak of Ebola overseas and while public health officials make every effort to prevent the transmission of the virus here in the U.S., I am working to ensure residents of the First District have all the facts they need to keep themselves safe and informed.

I was recently briefed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on the steps that need to be taken to prevent the spread of Ebola. After conversations with our Connecticut hospitals, physicians, and nurses, I have relayed their concerns to CDC officials and I look forward to continuing these discussions to ensure their questions get answered. In addition, I encourage everyone to learn more about what Governor Malloy and Commissioner Jewel Mullen (Department of Public Health) are doing to raise the level of preparedness in our Connecticut hospitals and protect our citizens and medical personnel.

While the chances of an outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. on the scale that we have seen in other countries is unlikely, it is clear that Congress needs to be back in session to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep the American public safe and make certain that our public health officials and hospitals have the resources they need to keep us safe and to better respond to potential Ebola cases. I will continue to prevail upon Congress to return to D.C. to address this threat to national security and provide agencies and health care providers with the resources they need to keep all Americans safe from Ebola here in the U.S. and abroad. 

Please continue to check this site, as we will be updating it as new information becomes available.
