Press release: August 26th, 2014 – Uganda is Ebola free

Uganda Tourism Board wishes to clarify that Uganda is Ebola free and no case has been reported within the borders of the country contrary to some media reports.

Whereas the country is on high alert, UTB wishes to inform all travelers, tourists, travel agencies, the general public and the international community that not a single case of Ebola has been recorded in Uganda.

The affected areas are far away from Uganda and the government of Uganda has set up screening sites at all borders of the country for travelers from affected regions and any suspected cases as precautionary endeavors.

We therefore wish to assure all tourists and visitors to Uganda of an Ebola free destination. We will keep all our visitors and travelers informed about the situation in the country.
