This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on the day after its notification in the Gazette, amends Section B of Part 1 of Schedule 1 and replaces Part 3 of Schedule 1 of the Health Act 1956. The amendment to Section B is to correct a spelling error in the item relating to viral haemorrhagic fevers.
Part 3 of Schedule 1, which lists quarantinable infectious diseases, is replaced so that its form mirrors the other Parts of Schedule 1 (where items are alphabetically ordered without being numbered). An item relating to viral haemorrhagic fevers (which includes Ebola virus disease) is also added. The addition of this item is the only substantive change to the Part.
Date of notification in Gazette: 4 September 2014.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Health.
