U.S. Tennessee Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker will host a roundtable discussion in Chattanooga on Ebola preparedness.

The event is scheduled for 2 to 3:15 p.m. on Friday at the CHI Memorial Hospital.

Alexander and Corker will meet with local health officials and medical experts to discuss how prepared the state is in case of an Ebola virus outbreak.

Earlier this month, the Tennessee Hospital Association, Tennessee Medical Association and Tennessee Nurses Association issued a joint statement saying they’re on heightened awareness for anyone showing up in their emergency rooms and physicians’ offices who exhibit symptoms similar to the Ebola virus.

The groups say they’re working in concert with the Tennessee Department of Health, as well as appropriate federal agencies, to ensure appropriate protocols and policies are in place.
