Red tide affects every person a little differently, said Dr. Karen Chapman, director of the Okaloosa County Health Department. Page 2 of 3 - "If the water is choppy and rough as it has been in the last few days, it can cause an aerosolization," Chapman said. Some people have skin reactions after coming into contact with water affected by red tide. "Generally, the best way to relieve the symptoms is to go inside with the air conditioning," Chapman said. " ... We also encourage children - and adults - not to play with dead fish or the foam that accumulates on the sand during a red tide." Although seafood from restaurants and grocery stores in areas affected by red tide is safe to eat, fish caught by recreational fishermen should be inspected closely, Chapman said. She also recommended not eating any mollusks from the areas where red tide is present. "Just using common sense ... if you're fishing and you catch a fish and it looks sick - don't eat those," Chapman said.

In an abundance of caution though, Chapman worked Monday to formalize the procedure for determining and isolating the disease if it does somehow make it here.
A person sick with Ebola will display the flu like symptoms of high fever, headache, nausea and upset stomach.
Importantly though, the victim would also have had have visited the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone or the Democratic Republic of Congo in the last 21 days, Chapman said.
If those two thresholds are met, the Health Department would be immediately contacted.
Chapman went through already established procedures for moving, isolating and treating potential Ebola victims.

Dr. Karen Chapman, director of the Okaloosa County Department of Health, confirmed receiving calls with concerns about the bacteria known as Vibrio vulnificus since a death attributed to it was reported July 29 in Sarasota County.
"There have been some calls to us," Chapman said. "People have been asking questions and we have educated them."
Vibrio vulnificus is a bacteria found in warm seawater. While not the flesh-eating invisible monster the media has at times portrayed it to be, it can be fatal to those whose immune system has been compromised by age or disease.
"Healthy people generally don't get this infection," Chapman said.
...
While the 2013 number of infections was higher than at any time since 2008, this year both the infection numbers (13) and death figures (3) are down significantly, Chapman said.
No infections have been reported this year on the Emerald Coast.
Chapman said the Health Department has cautioned local physicians and groups with high exposure to water, like charter fishermen, to be on the look out for symptoms which could indicate the onset of Vibrio vulnificus infection.
