Kinnaird said officials conducted a seminar in October concerning the virus, which has been blamed for more than 5,000 deaths in West Africa. A "tabletop exercise" is planned for December, and Kinnaird said information from that event will be used to help further develop the state's plan of attack.
Kinnaird said at the moment, West Virginia's hospitals are not fully prepared to handle an Ebola patient.
"Hospitals are developing plans and training staff," as well as identifying facilities for containment, she said. "They are in the process of getting prepared."
However, Kinnaird emphasized no patients identified with Ebola would remain at local hospitals.
"No Ebola patient will be treated through the course of the disease in West Virginia," she said. Instead the patient would be transferred to one of several out-of-state treatment centers designated by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. Kinnaird said the CDC is working to establish more treatment centers if needed.
