Any changes re: Ebola?

  1. We have started screening at booking for possible symptoms, namely fever and recent travel. I don't think too many of our guests travel much, but I think it is a good idea to start monitoring early rather than late. Any changes in your facility?

    I don't know of you watch the news, but my jail had an inmate that said he had Ebola yesterday. They cleared out the whole courtroom, he had on a hazmat suit and so did healthcare workers the whole shibang. I don't think they thought he had it, but the chief said let's use this as a learning drill. I haven't been to work in about a week (per diem) but I'll see what booking is doing when I get back. That inmate caused a ruckus. Lol

    We don't even HAVE hazmat suits.

    Our intake process now asks if the inmate has traveled to any of the countries with the Ebola epidemic.
