LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder says hospitals across Michigan say they’re ready if needed to respond to patients with potential Ebola virus infection.

Snyder gave the update Wednesday, saying the state is aggressively planning and working with hospitals. Two health officials leading Michigan’s efforts joined in the announcement along with hospital officials and other state agencies that are involved.

Department of Community Health Director Nick Lyon and Chief Medical Executive Dr. Matthew Davis are coordinating with the state’s health and medical community to ensure adequate training, education and equipment for health care workers.

On Tuesday, the Department of Community issued an update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to Michigan health care workers. The Community Health Emergency Coordination Center also has been activated to assist statewide efforts.
