The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) said Wednesday it established an Ebola hotline and call center to respond to inquiries related to the disease.
CDPH director and state health officer Dr. Ron Chapman said the hotline is one in a series of steps the agency has taken to respond to the epidemic.
"Our goal is to be available to eliminate the mystery of this disease and offer the facts to Californians as the situation evolves," Chapman said in a statement.
There have been three confirmed cases of Ebola in the United States and one fatality from the disease since the most recent outbreak was reported in Africa in May, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of Oct. 14, more than 4,500 deaths have been linked to the disease, the CDC said.
There are no confirmed cases of Ebola in California, representatives from CDPH said, and there are no suspected cases.
As part of the department's response, CDPH has worked with state, federal and local health officials to prepare for potential cases of Ebola in California and launched an informational website compiling information about the outbreak for medical professionals and the public.
The health agency developed an interim case report form for reporting suspected cases of Ebola to CDPH and distributed CDC guidance on specimen collection, transport, testing and submission for patients suspected of having the disease.
Last week, the agency posted interim medical waste management guidelines and held a teleconference with health care providers to discuss the latest news and guidance about handling suspected Ebola cases.
Health care professionals and members of the public can call the hotline at (855) 421-5921. The call center will be open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Beloved giraffe Nairobi was euthanized at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom after living a long life in the amusement park, representatives said Wednesday.
Park officials said the 25-year-old giraffe's quality of life had diminished greatly due to her advanced age. She died Tuesday after outliving nearly 90 percent of other female giraffes in her subspecies under human care, which typically live in their late teens or early 20s.
Standing 18 feet tall, the 1,600-pound animal was a favorite among staff and guests, park president Don McCoy said.
"Her elegance and stately manner, coupled with her quiet demeanor made her a great ambassador of her species," McCoy said in a statement. "She will be sorely missed by everyone here."
Nairobi was a reticulated giraffe, the most commonly known of the nine subspecies of giraffe. The species is characterized by the unique mosaic patterns of their fur, park representatives said.
As with all giraffe species, park officials said reticulated giraffe are considered endangered because of poaching and increased human encroachment.
Nairobi was born in the park and bore no offspring. Park representatives said she would be remembered as the most independent and largest of her herd, which included two other females and a male, and was fond of green onions and leafy vegetation.Wed, 22 Oct 2014 21:07:32 -0700
