HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Governor Dannel Malloy will be addressing Ebola precautions in place here in our state.

He will be providing information on the measures in place if a patient in Connecticut were to be diagnosed with the Ebola Virus.  Gov. Malloy will be joined by Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Jewel Mullen and other state officials.

The conference will be happening this afternoon at 2 p.m. at the State Operations Center located at 360 Broad Street.

This comes as two nurses are being treated for the deadly virus here in the United States. Both helped treat Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died of the virus last week.
