Binghamton University continues to monitor the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and has protocols in place to address suspect cases should they be identified on campus or within our campus community.

The Ebola virus is highly infectious, but not highly contagious, and only individuals who have been in direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected, symptomatic patient or objects that have been in contact with infected secretions are at a high risk for infection. Ebola is not transmitted through the air, food or water, so the risk of contracting Ebola at Binghamton University is very low – no different than anywhere else in the United States.
