BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota health officials have put together a set of guidelines to advice individuals traveling to Ebola-affected nations in West Africa.

Officials say people traveling to Guinea, Sierra Leone, Mali or Liberia should inform the Department of Health about their plans prior to traveling. Officials also ask that individuals coordinate their travel with a well-established group that routinely operates in those countries.

Upon returning to North Dakota, travelers should follow all protocols issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials add residents should contact the Health Department as soon as they return to the state to coordinate their 21-day monitoring period.

The World Health Organization has said the Ebola epidemic in West Africa has sickened more than 15,100 people and caused more than 5,400 deaths.
