It has also called for screening at its borders and public education on Ebola symptoms.
Although Tanzania has no Ebola case so far, the Deputy Health Minister Godwin Mollel called on the population to be alert to any symptoms.
In a statement, Mollel said he called upon all medical officers to provide public education on the disease, monitor it, and undertake investigations in their respective areas.
Ebola is an often fatal viral haemorrhagic fever. The death rate is typically high, ranging up to 90% in some outbreaks, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Human transmission is through body fluids, with the main symptoms being fever, vomiting, bleeding and diarrhea.
Uganda is currently facing an Ebola outbreak in the town of Mubende, reporting eleven confirmed cases and four deaths.
The current outbreak appears to have started in early September, west of Kampala. According to WHO, this strain is less transmissible and has a lower mortality rate compared to Ebola Zaire, which killed nearly 2,300 people in neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.
