Latest Information: Post-mortem Ebola Guidance
Updated: December 19, 2014
Funeral homes routinely care for individuals who die from contagious diseases and are well-trained to handle these situations using universal precautions that protect the health and safety of staff and the community at-large. Given the serious nature of Ebola, NFDA knows that you are acutely aware of the importance of taking every known precaution – in accordance with the guidance that has been released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – should you be asked to take an individual who died from an Ebola infection into your care. NFDA has compiled a variety of resources to help you be as safe as possible when handling the bodies of people who have died from an Ebola infection.
