CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners received a briefing Oct. 21 on the county’s state of readiness to identify and treat patients infected with Ebola.

“I hope you have your flu shot,” Dr. Claude M. Dharamraj, Department of Health Pinellas County director, told commissioners. “More people will die in the U.S. from flu than Ebola.”

She explained that thus far the only Ebola outbreak in the United States had occurred in Dallas Texas.

“There is no case in Florida. No case in Pinellas and no cases pending in Pinellas,” she said.

She said the CDC had issued guidelines to determine a person’s risk of having Ebola, which include travel to West Africa or contact with someone with the sickness.

Dharamraj is charged with the responsibility of declaring when someone should be quarantined or isolated. But response is a team effort, she said.

Anyone “highly suspected” will be taken to the hospital and placed in isolation. They will be tested and checked daily. Healthy people who were living with a patient also would be isolated and observed under quarantine for 21 days.

DOH would be in charge of observing and monitoring the patient during quarantine. DOH would provide food and a guard to make sure the patient stays quarantined.

TREASURE ISLAND - Pinellas County Utilities will do an emergency repair on a 12-inch potable water main in Treasure Island beginning at 11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23.

Customers within the vicinity of 125th Avenue to 123rd Avenue on Gulf Boulevard could be without water until 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24.

A storm drain has shifted, putting pressure on the water main, which resulted in a leak. A traffic maintenance control plan is in place for this area during the repair and during roadway restoration following the repair. There are no boil water notices at this time.

LARGO - Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a crane accident at 9142 Dream Way in unincorporated Largo about 11:35 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 19.

According to the sheriff’s report, no one was injured, but a home and four vehicles sustained damage.
