We have just been made aware - today 06 Oct 2022 - of the late-breaking US announcement by the CDC and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is now late at night in Uganda and the Uganda MOH nor the government has made any statement. We are learning of this as you are, being we are a Uganda based company, and Uganda was not previously informed of these new screenings.

The Ebola outbreak is currently isolated and reported as "contained" to very specific areas and it is not widespread throughout the country and tourism areas are not affected. Ebola is not a easily contracted and is not airborne (it cannot be spread through coughing or sneezing, such as Covid). As per the Mayo Clinic: Ebola is spread between humans when an uninfected person has direct contact with body fluids of a person who is sick with the disease or has died. People become contagious when they develop symptoms.

All guides and staff at CAS are unaffected and have been instructed to avoid these areas. Several news stories would lead readers to believe that Ebola is rampant throughout Uganda when it is, in fact, isolated to very specific areas with a total of 43 confirmed cases and 9 deaths, as per the MOH statement on 2 Oct 2022. The first diagnosed case was 20 Sept 2022. We recommend referring to the Uganda MOH and the WHO for updates rather than referring to media sources outside of Uganda.

Being we were informed of this screening development today, Uganda time, we don't currently have statements from third parties, the Ugandan government or terms and conditions specific to Ebola. We will keep this news page updated and liaise with our trade partners who have bookings in the near future on a case-by-case basis.
