LSU employee under quarantine after returning from Ebola training mission in Liberia, TV station reports
An LSU employee who recently returned to theBaton Rouge area from Liberia where he trained police there to avoid contracting Ebola will remain under a precautionary 21-day quarantine before returning to campus, WAFB reports.
Jason Krause, an associative director at LSU with the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training, was among a team of five from the United States on a three-week mission to train officers how to react to the spreading of the virus. He trained more than 1,200 officers about how to protect themselves and prevent spreading Ebola during their daily dealings on the job. He did not, he told the TV station, deal with patients or in any medical setting.
