Oct. 19, 2014 Deal: Ebola response team will examine state preparedness
Governor taps team of experts to ensure that Georgia stands prepared should the need arise
Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that he will sign an executive order to create an Ebola response team, which will assess current state health and emergency management procedures and produce necessary recommendations to minimize any potential impact of the disease in Georgia.
“Rest assured, Georgia is taking the threat of the Ebola virus seriously,” Deal said. “The creation of this team is an additional step in the state’s response to this disease and will further our efforts to ensure the safety and quality of life for our citizens. By combining the expertise of the health and research communities with our state agencies, Georgia will be uniquely positioned to combat the risks of Ebola should the need arise. Those that have been chosen to serve on the panel are leaders in their respective fields – specifically Emory University Hospital, which has remained at the forefront of our nation’s response to this infectious disease. We are taking every necessary precaution to alleviate fear within our communities and make certain Georgia stands prepared.”
The team will be comprised of representatives from the following: Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Georgia Department of Community Health, Georgia National Guard, Emory University Hospital, University System of Georgia infectious disease experts, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, city of Atlanta and members of the nursing, rural hospital, EMT and education communities. Individuals on the response team will be named in the executive order tomorrow.
The team will convene this week and immediately begin issuing recommendations.

ISIS is on the march. Government-run healthcare is failing. High taxes and more regulations are holding the economy back. It’s time to send a clear message to Obama and the liberals in Washington by voting them out. Sign the Pledge to Vote Early and Stop Obama’s agenda.
My prayers today are with the two Dallas nurses who put themselves at risk in order to help a patient with Ebola. They represent the best of America’s dedicated health care professionals.
Now, Americans are asking how Ebola could spread in our country, why a nurse with symptoms was given permission to board a commercial flight, and why the strictest, safest protocols were not followed. It is disturbing to consider that it only took one Liberian, without symptoms when he arrived in the United States, to start this dangerous chain of events. That fact raises questions about the effectiveness of entry screening and should cause the president to seriously consider banning travel to the United States by non-U.S. citizens from the affected West African countries. I would support that action, in addition to other aggressive measures, if it means keeping Americans safe from Ebola.
