ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says the first meeting has been scheduled for the state’s newly formed Ebola response team.

Deal says the 13-person group will meet Wednesday afternoon at the state Capitol building.

The group is tasked with evaluating Georgia’s emergency management procedures and making recommendations to address potential impacts that Ebola could have on Georgia.

The team includes health, military and emergency management officials and representatives from health care facilities, including Atlanta’s Emory University where three people have been treated and released and one patient is being treated for the virus.
