On September 20, 2022 the WHO and Uganda Minister of Health confirmed an outbreak of Sudan virus / Ebola in central Uganda. 

At this time, we don't believe that the outbreak will affect tourism in Uganda. All CAS staff and guides are fully aware of the situation and have been instructed to avoid any outbreak areas. Areas currently affected are not included in our safari itineraries and are not areas that tourists would frequent. As always, the CAS team continues to observe our Health & Safety Protocols for cleaning, sanitizing and risk mitigation. The MOH, alongside the WHO, have actioned an Ebola response plan including isolation, contact tracing, screening and case management. Based on previous outbreaks the MOH has been successful in their actions and we don't have any reason to believe this scenario will be different.

From the WHO:

Uganda has reported four SVD outbreaks, in 2000, 2011 and 2012 (two outbreaks). Uganda also reported a Bundibugyo virus disease outbreak in 2007 and an Ebola virus disease outbreak in 2019.

Uganda has experience in responding to Ebola virus disease and Sudan virus disease outbreaks, and necessary action has been initiated quickly. The current outbreak is the first Ebola disease outbreak caused by Sudan virus in Uganda since 2012.
