In October 2014, guidance titled "West Africa Ebola Outbreak – Guidance to UK Ports and Shipping Operators" was produced in consultation with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s medical advisor and Public Health England. Work on additional guidance, which is being produced in consultation with Public Health England, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and industry has been under way for some time, and I have asked for this to be made available as soon as possible.
