Quick rundown.

Although #EVD and #EHF are #BSL-4 containment specimens, those of us living in the good ol’ US-of-A - and not traveling - have microscopically-slim-to-no chances of finding ourselves victims of C&D process, (even though we knowingly brought two patients to the #CDC HQ in #Atlanta.) The US has an amazingly talented, efficient, and successful epi/pandemic preventative AND reactionary response protocol…which somehow manages to be so dynamic that it is simultaneously ultraconservative and radical. So fear not, my fleshy friends, the days of #TheWalkingDead are not yet upon us!

BSL: Biosafety level*
C&D: Contraction and disease
CDC: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention*
EHF: Ebola hemorrhagic fever
EVD: Ebola virus disease
HQ: Headquarters**

*Biosafety levels: “A biosafety level is a level of the biocontainment precautions required to isolate dangerous biological agents in an enclosed facility. The levels of containment range from the lowest biosafety level 1 (BSL-1) to the highest at level 4 (BSL-4.)”

**CDC HQ: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is headquartered just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

My Fairy Goddaughter did my hair last night. She begged me not to wash it today so she could “finish it” when I pick her up from school today. I look like something out of #MyLittlePony - my head is various shades of pink, blue, and purple, and I’m pretty sure she’s planning to use glitter today. #FriendshipIsMagic (at Rocketship Si Se Puede Academy)
