COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is leading a group of department heads, state lawmakers and public health experts in a discussion of what the state is doing in response to the Ebola outbreak.

The Ebola Preparedness Roundtable is scheduled for Monday on the Statehouse grounds in Columbia.

The roundtable discussion will address the importance of coordination, training, preparedness measures, and public outreach between various groups and organizations involved in South Carolina’s response.

Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Templeton said Thursday that the state is creating a statewide network linking health workers and facilities that may have to deal with Ebola.

Templeton also said the Medical University of South Carolina has agreed to provide ongoing care for any Ebola patients in the state.
