This guidance was written during the 2014 to 2015 Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
Police officers may come into contact with people recently returned from outbreak countries, and this leaflet provides advice and information on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Added 21 January guidance. PPE advice re-phrased to take into account police needs and their current procedures, stressing the very low probability of police coming into contact with a suspect Ebola case. Epidemiology updated. First port of call for Police (in case of a suspect Ebola case):local HPT (rather than 111).
Updated guidance on using personal protective equipment (PPE) for police.
