Five People In Indiana Being Monitored For Signs Of Ebola

Five people are being monitored in Indiana for possible signs of Ebola. The five recently traveled from Africa. A news release from the state health department says They are all “cooperative and are considered low risk” for the deadly virus. Indiana was one of the first states in the nation to begin “direct active monitoring” of all returning travelers. Direct active monitoring means any individual coming here from Guinea, Sierra Leone or Liberia will be monitored by the local health department for 21 days upon entering the country. This includes twice daily temperature and symptom checks. If the travelers experience symptoms in between checks, they have been instructed to contact the local health department immediately.
