Over 100 In Pennsylvania Being Watched For Ebola

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania health officials say three Pennsylvanians continue to show no signs of Ebola, after taking an Oct. 13 flight from Cleveland to Dallas with a nurse who later tested positive for the virus.

A Department of Health spokeswoman said Tuesday the trio continues to be monitored, along with approximately 100 others who spent time in Ebola-stricken West African nations before arriving in Pennsylvania.

Spokeswoman Aimee Tysarczyk says none have tested positive for Ebola and that their risk of getting Ebola is very low.

Travelers from Liberia, Sierra Leone and New Guinea who come to Pennsylvania are being asked to track body temperatures and symptoms, and to check in with officials twice a day for three weeks. Tysarczyk says the department is in touch with each person daily.
