Two more people have been quarantined in northeast Ohio following the visit by a Dallas nurse who tested positive for Ebola, raising the total to three following the issuance of new monitoring guidelines by the state.
None of the three quarantined in Ohio have exhibited any Ebola-like symptoms, a Summit County health department representative said Sunday.
Previously, only Amber Joy Vinson’s stepfather had been quarantined in his home in suburban Akron. One of the newly quarantined individuals is in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, the other is in Summit County.
Gov. John Kasich ordered the new guidelines, which include travel restrictions, on Saturday. A state health official said the guidelines, including the travel restrictions, are meant to remove any chance of Ebola spreading.
“As we’ve seen, travel is a potential problem,” said Ohio epidemiologist Dr. Mary DiOrio. “It’s why the people of Ohio are dealing with the situation we have right now.”
