Smith, C., Hughes, S., Karwowski, M., et al. (2015). Addressing Needs of Contacts of Ebola Patients During an Investigation of an Ebola Cluster in the United States - Dallas, Texas, 2014. MMWR Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. 64(5):121-123.
In this report, the authors discuss the importance of anticipating the nonclinical needs of those under public health surveillance (e.g., concerns about housing, transportation, education, employment, food, and other household needs). The report also stresses the importance of ensuring these types of support are addressed so that residents will be more likely to comply with quarantine orders, and the utility of community collaboration (with partners such as businesses, schools, community and faith-based organizations, and social services).
