Cobalt staff

A CDC employee.

The Center for Disease Control, abbreviated to CDC, is a location and organization mentioned in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. It has a quarantine station in Los Angeles, California. (This is based on their real world counterparts.[1]) Members of the quarantine station are seen on the streets of Los Angeles after the shooting of the Homeless Man by members of the LAPD.


Homeless Man being body bagged

In "So Close, Yet So Far", workers from the CDC arrive to Los Angeles, where they bag the body of an infected, now deceased homeless man.

After this, it is unknown what happened to those CDC members stationed in Los Angeles. It is possible that some may have been evacuated to the main CDC building in Atlanta, or that others may have been evacuated with the fleeing military to Edwards Air Force Base.
