As 21 days have passed since the two aid workers evacuated from Sierra Leone had unprotected contact with Ebola patients, active monitoring of their health status by the Community Health Service has ended.
On 14 September 2014, two Dutch aid workers were evacuated from Sierra Leone. Their work brought them into contact with Ebola patients and thus the chance of becoming infected could not be ruled out. Doctors assessed the health status of the two aid workers on their arrival in the Netherlands. Subsequently, the Community Health Service maintained contact on a daily basis with the two aid workers to monitor for any signs of symptoms. The period of active monitoring has now ended.
