1. Identification and
interviewing
2. Active monitoring
a. Identify contacts by
interviewing patient
or other informants
Monitor contacts with
high- or low-risk
exposures for 21 days
following last
exposure
b. Interview all
identified contacts to
evaluate need for PH
follow-up
3. Discharge
Release on 22nd day
following last
exposure
At ANY point in this process you may encounter
contacts with symptoms of Ebola.
You must know and be able to carry out your LHD
procedure to safely respond to this situation.

1. Every case and potential
contact receives a unique ID
EID
EXXX
2. For each case a person may
have been exposed to, a contact
ID Number is created:
Contact ID Number 1
NNNN-XXX
3. If any contact becomes a case
they also receive an NC EDSS
Event Number:
Contact ID Number n
NNNN-XXX
Every potential contact will receive a minimum of two ID numbers: an EID and at least
one contact ID number (a person may have multiple contact ID numbers if exposed to
multiple cases). They will also have an NC EDSS event number if they become
symptomatic.
